It’s All About the Kids

This year, the Green Valley Turkey Trot will benefit three charities that support children with cancer – Hope for Henry, Josh’s Jammies, and Ari’s Bears – and the Chestnut Ridge Volunteer Fire Company.

Hope for Henry is reinventing how hospitals care for seriously ill children and their families through innovative programs that entertain, reduce stress and empower children to be active participants in their own care.

Ari’s Bears delivers brand new stuffed bears and other animals to children fighting illness in hospitals and respite houses. They also include siblings as they often feel left out or forgotten. 

Josh’s Jammies collects pajamas for kids with cancer. These kids spend a lot of time in their pajamas, or in boring hospital gowns. Josh’s Jammies collects all sizes of pajamas for boys and girls with cancer. Be a superhero and bring new kids’ pajamas to the Turkey Trot to donate!

The Chestnut Ridge Volunteer Fire Company is a 100% volunteer company, providing emergency medical services and firefighting to homes and businesses in rural Greenspring Valley across Owings Mills, Reisterstown, Lutherville, and Cockeysville.
