In recognition of Brain Injury Awareness Day on March 20th, Kennedy Krieger Institute invites you to #SportYourHelmet to help raise awareness of brain injuries and the importance of protecting your head by wearing proper safety gear when participating in sports and activities. Whether it is when you are cycling on the weekend, at work on the baseball field, out practicing lacrosse with your kids, join us in our #SportYourHelmet Challenge!
An internationally recognized institution, Kennedy Krieger provides research, treatment, education and community programs for more than 20,000 children annually. We believe that early identification, intervention, and treatment of disabilities are key to maximizing potential and preventing major problems throughout a child's life. We are dedicated to understanding, unlocking, and overcoming the problems and injuries that affect a child's developing brain and nervous system.
Stories of potential achieved through the hard work and support of our dedicated staff, committed donors, supportive caregivers, and most importantly the inspirational patients and students who come through our doors everyday.
