Kennedy Krieger Institute –

Responsive Participant Center

Kennedy Krieger’s mission is “to transform the lives of children with disorders of the brain through groundbreaking research, innovative treatments, and life-changing education.” Charity Dynamics helped realize this mission by implementing a responsive Participant Center that Kennedy Krieger piloted with the Baltimore Running Festival, a signature fundraising event that raised over $125,000 in unrestricted funds for Kennedy Krieger.
