Earlier this year, we announced that all funds raised during Hats & Horses 2021 would support the immediate needs of Kennedy Krieger Institute's clinical trial of PediaCORE, an innovative movement training system designed to help young children with movement disorders. While Hats & Horses has been postponed to May 5, 2022, this clinical trial is in need of your support NOW.

WIN's sixth annual Hats & Horses Benefiting Kennedy Krieger Institute will be held at a new location—The Winslow, in downtown Baltimore. Guests will enjoy expertly prepared cuisine by Linwoods, specialty cocktails, and auctions, and then dance the night away!

This year, funds raised through the event will support a clinical trial of PediaCORE, an innovative movement training system created by a design team from the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering and mentored by Dr. Amy Bastian, Kennedy Krieger's chief science office and director of the Institute's Center for Movement Studies. Watch this brief video that will introduce you to PediaCORE and provide a high-level explanation of how this system is posed to change young lives.

Each year this event welcomes stakeholders committed to supporting Baltimore's business, retail and nonprofit communities. Over the past five years, Hats & Horses sponsors and guests have collectively raised more than $1,480,000 to support the important work of Kennedy Krieger.
