2017 Memorial Walk/Run

Kids’ Chance 2017 Fallen Workers Memorial Run/Walk Helps Raise Awareness, Scholarship Funds

The morning of Sunday, April 9th was brisk but sunny as more than 120 supporters, runners and walkers came out to support the Kids’ Chance of Maryland scholarship fund. This was the 5th annual 5k run and 1m walk. For the 2nd year, it was held at Goucher College in Towson.

After the run and walk there was a memorial reading of the names of the 54 Maryland workers who lost their lives in 2016. The memorial ceremony then ended with a trumpet player playing “Taps.” Check out our Flickr photo album to see photos from the 2017 Workers’ Memorial 5K Run & 1M Walk.
