Sponsor ROAR for Kids This Spring and Give Your Employees a Local Cause to Rally Around

ROAR for Kids is a 5K run, low-mileage fun walk and family jungle festival dedicated to raising critically-needed funds for research and programs at Kennedy Krieger Institute. Held at Oregon Ridge Park in Cockeysville, Maryland, on the last Saturday in April, this event is a great way for participants to “ROAR” for the cause of their choice by supporting specific programs at Kennedy Krieger Institute.

When your company sponsors ROAR for Kids, you can:

  • Provide an opportunity for your employees to become active in the community
  • Form teams and raise money online—attending the event is optional
  • Promote team spirit and encourage a healthy competition between your departments or with other organizations
  • Receive broad exposure, as your brand can appear in print, online advertising and onsite promotions for ROAR
  • Promote the values your brand stands for by giving back
  • Receive tax deductions for your participation

About ROAR for Kids

Kennedy Krieger Institute’s ROAR for Kids provides the perfect opportunity for your company to connect with children and families in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area. Participants may join in our 5K run, low-mileage fun walk for individuals of all ages, and/or family jungle festival. This event features activities for the whole family, including entertainment and refreshments, and one of the area’s most impressive playgrounds. Those who would like to support the Institute but are unable to attend may register to “Snore for ROAR” (i.e., raise money online only). All participants—in-person attendees and online-only fundraisers—receive a commemorative t-shirt.

Since the inaugural event in 2005, ROAR for Kids has raised more than $3 million for research and programs at Kennedy Krieger Institute.
