To protect the health of our community, we've gone virtual!

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and to keep our community safe, ROAR for Kids 2020 is now a virtual fundraiser.

April 25, 2020

While we may not be together in person at Oregon Ridge this year, you can still ROAR more loudly than ever to help kids and families at Kennedy Krieger Institute.

Celebrate and ROAR with us on event day, Saturday April 25 on our Facebook page.
