Kennedy Krieger Institute
VU is turning FIVE and we’ve got big plans to celebrate. This is a can’t miss event with kids, crafts, balloons, beer and cake. Need we say more?
If you aren’t on the edge of your seat yet, keep reading.
We’re going back to where it all started, exactly five years and one day ago, at the Kennedy Krieger Institute (1741 Ashland Ave). This event will support two amazing organizations: 1) The Kennedy Krieger Institute (KKI) which focuses on transforming the lives of children with disorders of the brain through groundbreaking research, innovative treatments, and life-changing education, and 2) Believe Big which helps families navigate the cancer journey. We’re on a mission to bring all the great birthday feels to kids fighting the big fight. Our volunteer hours are going towards helping the children and families of KKI and Believe Big forget about life’s challenges.
Volunteers will be helping with a variety of activities including running the carnival stations for the KKI children, creating blankets for the KKI children, creating inspirational and silly cards for patients at multiple children’s hospitals, and painting Believe Big mugs for the Believe Big families to enjoy. We’re delivering all the joy that can be found at a 5th birthday party!
Andddd since it’s our birthday, we want presents! Lots and lots of presents, but not for us. Our gift is celebrating this incredible milestone with the hundreds of volunteers that have made it all possible. In honor of our birthday, we’re asking our incredible volunteers to bring a gift for a child, five years old or younger, that will be donated to the children at KKI.
Our special day doesn’t stop there though. The afterparty will be held at Admiral’s Cup in Fells Point (1647 Thames Street) where there will be drink specials, and of course, cake! Because what’s a birthday party without cake?!?
Not only are we celebrating our 5th birthday, but also volunteerism in Baltimore. We are inviting anyone that has ever volunteered with us to come out and celebrate at our afterparty at Admiral’s Cup.
We hope to see you there!!
