Congratulations!  Kids Helping Hopkins ...  First Kilometers For Kids  Reaches Goal!

The goal was reached!! A hefty goal of  $20,000 was reached (and exceeded) with the help of all the participants in the first - Kilometers for Kids 5K Run/2K Walk. Money raised will help patients continue to receive world-class pediatric care at Johns Hopkins Children's Center.

Thanks to the care of our wonderful doctors and groundbreaking medical research, the Hopkins Children's community extends across the world. Some patients walk to the clinics, others travel from across the U.S. and distant countries for the pediatric care for which it is renown. The center  founded in 1912 is consistently ranked as one of the top children's hospitals in the country, and treats over 120,000 children each year. JHH Children's center is  noted for  excellence in more than 20 pediatric sub-specialties including; cardiology, transplant, psychiatric illnesses, and genetic disorders.'

 There was so much good energy on this very chilly Baltimore Saturday morning. Over 200 people were at Oregon Ridge..including  families, friends, sponsors, teachers, co-workers, adults, teens and children. Some walked the 2K, some ran the 5K and many were there for support and cheering. You could hear the shouts.."Come on, you are doing great, keep up the good work!"

The goal was reached!! A hefty goal of  $20,000..reached with the help of all the participants in the FIRST- Kilometers for Kids 5K Run/2K Walk. Money raised will help patients continue to receive world-class pediatric care at Johns Hopkins Children's Center.

Congratulations!
