Team Playworks is an exciting and fun charity event that supports play for over 10,000 students in Baltimore.
Challenge yourself by running or walking in your choice of the 5k, Family Fun Run, Half Marathon, Full Marathon or four-person Team Relay. After running through the streets of Baltimore - beyond Camden Yards, the Inner Harbor, Canton, and even through Fells Point – you'll cross the finish line in the parking lot of M&T Bank Stadium where you'll find loads of cheering spectators rooting you on!
Playworks is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to making sure every child has a chance to play every school day. Playworks stops the chaos on the playground, shifts behavior and accelerates learning.
Playworks is a national nonprofit that partners with 300 elementary schools, in 23 cities across the country. In Baltimore, Playworks partners with 24 Baltimore City Schools.
