Annual Event to Raise Funds for Autism Research
BALTIMORE, MD – This year, families throughout the region will once again come together to “ROAR” for the millions of children with autism who cannot. Celebrating its 5th anniversary, Kennedy Krieger Institute’s annual fundraiser ROAR for Autism will be held on Saturday, April 25 at Oregon Ridge Park. Following a successful 2008 fundraiser that featured over 1,000 participants, once again teams of families and friends will participate in the activity-filled event that helps raise critically needed funds for autism research. Autism, a complex, life-altering, developmental disorder, affects 1 in every 150 children.
ROAR for Autism will feature events and activities for every member of the family including challenging 50- and 25- mile rides, a 10-mile ride for recreational bikers, a 5-mile ride designed for beginner cyclists, and a kid’s youth fun ride. For those who prefer to stay off the road and in the woods, hiking trails at Oregon Ridge will be open with guides available to lead tours. In addition to the hiking and biking activities, there will also be a family fun festival including face painting, children’s entertainment, and the popular Wegman’s Wellness Village featuring healthy food for all families including those with children on special autism diets.
With last year marking the successful introduction of the online team fundraising component, participants can once again go online to register, join a fundraising team, and to build a personal fundraising page to raise money from supporters. Additionally, “Snore for ROAR” is an option again this year for those individuals who can’t quite get out of bed that early but want to make their voice heard and “ROAR” for autism research. For more information about ROAR, or to register, visit www.ROAR.kennedykrieger.org or call 443-923-7300.
All cyclists and hikers can register either solo or as a team. Rest stops and bike repair services will be available along the bike routes.
