The sixth annual Kids for Hope is an adventurous and exciting event designed for kids! Modeled after challenging obstacle courses and mud runs for adults, this family friendly course empowers kids ages 7-18 to take part in this unique event while raising funds to support Cancer LifeNet at the Patricia D. and M. Scot Kaufman Cancer Center at University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health.

Held on the grounds of The Arena Club – mud, water, sand and sweat make up The Ultimate Obstacle Course. This intense, yet safe, 2 mile (approx.) course includes: cargo nets, rope and wall climbing, mud and sand pits, fitness challenges, tunnels, bridges, a trek through the beach pool, and so much more. Don’t miss out on the fun! More than 700 local kids and families will join us this year, getting muddy for a great cause!

2017 Event Recap: 

The fifth annual Kids for Hope mud run and ultimate obstacle course was INCREDIBLE! A special thank you to the Arena Club and to the 2017 Kids for Hope committee members, participants, sponsors and volunteers -together, we raised $45,000 to directly benefit Cancer LifeNet at the Kaufman Cancer Center. This is truly friends and neighbors helping friends and neighbors in the fight against cancer – we sincerely thank you.
