Baltimore Boogie 2017

Johns Hopkins Children’s Center's Dance Marathon

Baltimore Boogie, Johns Hopkins Children’s Center's dance marathon, provides a unique opportunity to raise funds and awareness for sick and injured children in your local community while having fun! Members of our Teen and Children's Council are actively planning for our inaugural event Saturday, November 11, 2017, from 12 to 6 p.m.

What is Baltimore Boogie?

Baltimore Boogie is a yearlong effort involving community events that culminates in a six-hour “dance marathon” where participants stay on their feet through dancing, games and entertainment at the hospital in celebration of the amount raised that year. No dancing skills are required. Everything we do is for the kids!

History of the Johns Hopkins Children's Center Race Team

In 2007, Team Sadie began running 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.
