SECU, Maryland’s largest credit union, partnered with the Baltimore Orioles this year to host K’s for Kids VIP days at Camden Yards for children treated at Kennedy Krieger Institute.

The events were part of SECU’s “K’s for Kids” sponsorship with the baseball club. Throughout the 2019 season, each time an Orioles’ pitcher throws a strikeout at Camden Yards, SECU donates $50 to Kennedy Krieger. As of Aug. 30, Orioles’ pitchers have thrown 522 strikeouts and SECU has pledged to donate $26,100. SECU will present the final donation to Kennedy Krieger at the end of the Orioles’ 2019 season.

Olive Weidenhammer, Willow Weidenhammer, Nasir Lay and Elijah Yanike and their families were guests of the Orioles and SECU for games July 17, Aug. 9 and Aug. 19 at Camden Yards. They watched the games from the SECU corporate sponsorship box and met with Orioles’ players and coaches during batting practice. In addition some Orioles’ players will also visit Kennedy Krieger to visit the young patients early this fall.

Kennedy Krieger is dedicated to improving the lives of children and young adults with disorders of the brain and nervous system through groundbreaking research, innovative treatments and life-changing education.
