Race How You Want, Where You Want

Thank you participants!

Thank you to everyone who participated, shirts, swag bags, and medals will be sent out the week of November 20th, be on the lookout for your package!


Your health and safety are always our top priorities. Thus, Kennedy Krieger will NOT be participating in Baltimore Running Festival 2020. Instead, we are holding our OWN “Virtual Racing Festival” to fundraise safely in support of adaptive sports and recreation opportunities. This means you can race any distance, anywhere, using any equipment you’d like. While we are avoiding crowds this year, making our race look different, we are all still racing for the same reason: to bring hope through motion to individuals with disabilities.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will support the training needs of patients with disabilities by providing them scholarships, new therapy equipment and opportunities to participate in adaptive sports competitions.

  1. Sign up as a team captain, team member or individual. Choose your distance.Register for your race.
  2. Team Kennedy Krieger provides easy tips and templates to help you fundraise online.Start fundraising and spread the word.
  3. Finish your race during race week how you want to, where you want to and share your accomplishment with our community.Join us on race week.
