Event Overview

The Cool Kids Courageous Run includes a family friendly 5K and a 1-mile fun run/walk that begin at 8 am. This hilly cross country course on the grassy fields at Oregon Ridge Park will be professionally timed by Charm City Run and is perfect for walkers and families. This course may be a challenge at times, but remember, it’s easier than one round of chemo!

All registered participants will receive a cotton race t-shirt before the start and receive a cold wash cloth at the finish line. All children will also receive a medal at the finish! After the races, everyone is welcome to join in the fun festival that features a live DJ, food spread, and outdoor games for the entire family!

In just five of these annual events, over $80,000 has been raised to benefit our 100% free programs for pediatric oncology patients and their families!
