Why Join the Kennedy Krieger Institute Team?

The funds raised from the Kennedy Krieger Institute Baltimore Running Festival team will support our rehabilitation programs, in which aggressive, innovative therapies help individuals with disorders and injuries of the brain and spinal cord recover. In addition, funds will support the training needs of patients with disabilities who participate in the event, through the funding of adaptive sports, scholarships, new therapy equipment and participation in marathons across the country. Recreational activities are often overlooked for individuals with disabilities, but Kennedy Krieger recognizes the important benefits—including improved health, self-esteem, social connections and community reintegration—of exercise for its patients.
With this charity team, we aim to increase the number of Kennedy Krieger patients who are able to participate in the races each year and open the door to improved physical fitness for those with disabilities. Thank you for sharing our vision!
