Interested in a family-friendly outing that supports a good cause? Head to Nationals Park June 21st and check out Home Runs for Horton’s Kids. The event features races with President Teddy, a pitch competition in the bullpen, and batting practice. Kids under 14 get in for free; parents get to enjoy an open bar. All proceeds go to Horton’s Kids, a nonprofit that empowers children in one of DC’s most at-risk neighborhoods, and encourages them to graduate high school.
It's Horton's Kids' mission to mentor 500 K-12 students each year, and empower them to succeed in college, career, and life. This is a huge undertaking and not possible without volunteers and support from the community. Robin Berkley started as a volunteer in 2011. The relationships with the children she tutored combined with her background in public education inspired her to join the organization on a full-time basis. Now as the Executive Director, she strives to ensure the comprehensive model of academics, youth development, and health needs of the program stays in tact. By attending Home Runs for Horton's Kids, you can make a difference in these children's lives.
