The Children’s Inn at NIH provides free lodging—and so much more—to over 1,500 children that stay there each year while participating in clinical trials at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the nation’s premier bio-medical research institute. Since The Inn’s founding, researchers have made huge advances in treating diseases like HIV, childhood cancer and asthma- and families benefit from over 1,000 support programs offered each year while their children participate in groundbreaking research.
Each mile and each dollar raised from Team #RunINN4Kids fuels access to the research that makes childhood possible for the more than 13,000 kids, traveling from all 50 states and 94 different countries, who have stayed at The Inn.
The Inn provides not only free lodging, but also meals, more than 1,300 hours of educational, recreational and therapeutic programming each year—things like homework help, field trips to the monuments in DC and even summer camp for children that could never otherwise attend—all while enabling families to develop friendships and learn from others who know what it’s like to seek the promise of hope or a cure for a seriously ill child.
The money raised by #RunINN4Kids makes childhood possible for the children who stay at The Inn and for children worldwide that benefit from the research happening at NIH.
