Join Kennedy Krieger Institute for the 17th annual, jungle-themed ROAR for Kids fundraiser. Due to the pandemic, the fundraiser will be held virtually again this year and will now be a week instead of just one day. Starting Saturday, May 15, and lasting until Saturday, May 22, families can join in for daily activities to raise funds for research and programs that help kids at the Institute. On the last day, the event will conclude with a virtual version of the traditional 5k road run! Since 2005, this event has raised over $3 million for Kennedy Krieger Institute.
Kicking off the week will be the first-ever ROAR Drive-Thru Celebration on Saturday, May 15 where participants can pick up goodie bags and score fun prizes for the kids at home. The fun-filled week will consist of several virtual events including yoga, dress like your favorite animal, and more! Kennedy Krieger will host a ROAR Pep Rally on Friday, May 21, to energize and excite families, kids, and supporters for the final big day. The Pep Rally will include games and inspirational testimonies from health care professionals and families that have been supported by Kennedy Krieger. On Saturday, May 22, the weeklong event will wrap-up with the Virtual Race and Mascot Challenge! Post pictures on social media showing off your Kennedy Krieger pride and support with #ROAR4Kids. Wearing your favorite animal face paint or fun costume is encouraged!
Participants and teams may register online and build personal fundraising pages—all in support of the Kennedy Krieger program of their choice or support the Institute by selecting “General Institute Support.” Celebrate and ROAR all week long by following the event on our Facebook page.
