Lions ROAR, elephants ROAR, tigers ROAR… and you, too, can ROAR for Kids with Kennedy Krieger! Join us on Saturday, April 28 at Kennedy Krieger Institute’s ROAR for Kids, a 5K run and low-mileage walk for individuals of all ages. 

New this year! We are embracing our lush natural surroundings at Oregon Ridge Park with a jungle theme. Dress up like your favorite wild animal to win prizes and join in the fun! Let your imagination run wild!

When all you cheetahs, giraffes, and orangutans are finished stampeding or walking, be sure to checkout the wide variety of fun activities and entertainment at our Jungle Festival, featuring music, family-friendly entertainment, and activities for kids of all ages, including a coloring station, bean-bag toss, oversized croquet and much more.

Feeling sleepy as a sloth? Sleep in--hakuna matata. You can Snore for ROAR to support our kids!

All proceeds from the event will help raise much-needed funds for research and programs to help kids at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. To see how past funds were used by specific programs, please click here!
