Baltimore Running Festival

Team Hopkins Kids 2023

Team Hopkins Kids provides community members the opportunity to run (or walk!) any race in the Baltimore Running Festival while raising funds for any area at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.

When you register, you can choose which race you want to run (in person or virtually). There is a $250 fundraising minimum for all folks registering for the race, and runners have until December 31st to reach their goal. We provide lots of resources to help make fundraising as fun and easy as possible.

We are thrilled to be back in person and once again hosting a Team Hopkins Kids tent during the Baltimore Running Festival. Register by Oct. 5th to help the Children’s Center have a major presence at the festival!

We hope you will join us as part of Team Hopkins Kids either in person at the Baltimore Running Festival or virtually on race day on Saturday, Oct. 14th.

History of the Johns Hopkins Children's Center Race Team

In 2007, Team Sadie began participating in the Baltimore Running Festival to raise money in support of Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in memory of Sadie Elizabeth Abell. After raising nearly $1 million, Team Sadie officially passed the baton to Johns Hopkins Children’s Center to carry on the mission by creating a team for the 2017 Baltimore Running Festival. Team Hopkins Kids has raised nearly $600,000 for 20 divisions and programs at the Children’s Center since its inception.
