Justin Berk Crossing Maryland
When Justin Berk, Meteorologist, was 14 years old, he almost lost his left leg. Now at 41, this is a reflection of the number and also a reflection for him of his recovery, athletic accomplishments that followed, and all the people who have further inspired him. On August 17, 2014 Justin will start a 7 day trek across the entire state of Maryland between Summit of Wisp and ending at the Inlet in Ocean City on August 23rd. Each day will be dedicated to a different Cool Kid! To donate to Justin’s walk, please visit his Razoo online fundraising page! Track Justin’s progress here.

The Baltimore Running Festival is the premiere running event in the city and it draws between 20 and 30 thousand people every year. The Festival features a full-marathon, half-marathon, team relay, 5k, and kids fun run. Cool Kids Campaign is super excited to be a charity partner for such a wonderful race which will be held on Saturday, October 18, 2014. By running with Team Cool Kids, we secure your place in the sellout race, pick up your race packet/bib, and have our race day “tent” at Dempsey’s Brew Pub which has the prime spot to watch the finishers!
