Lace Up your sneakers with The Family Tree and help raise money to support children and families in our community.

Registration is OPEN for the 3rd annual Annual Brent A. Rosenberg Lace Up to End Child Abuse 5k and 1.5 mile Family Fun Walk on Saturday, October 29, 2022. This year’s event will be a hybrid, with both in-person and virtual options. Families are invited to M&T Bank Stadium for a live event (with exclusive tour of the Ravens locker room!). Or, for those who live out of state or feel more comfortable doing the race on their own, they have a virtual option. Either way, join together and cross the finish line in support of children and families.

In Maryland, a child is reported abused or neglected every 10 minutes. For every reported case of abuse, two go unreported. Child abuse and neglect cost Maryland taxpayers $1.5 billion each year. Yet for every $1 invested in The Family Tree’s cause of prevention, it is estimated that the state saves $15 on treating its long-term effects. The Family Tree is the leading authority in Maryland for the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Their vision is that all children are raised in safe and supportive families and communities. They do that through proven, research-based programs that strengthen families and break the cycle of abuse and neglect.

The live 5K Run/Wwalk begins at 9 am and the 1.5 mile Family Fun Walk begins at 9:30 AM.
