Give Kids The World provides children with life-threatening illness the vacation of a lifetime!

Give Kids The World provides children with life-threatening illness the vacation of a lifetime! GKTW takes care of it all for these brave kids and their families – accommodations in beautiful villas, transportation, theme park tickets, meals and more. They relax, play, laugh and simply spend time together. And for a kid with a serious illness – that kind of happiness inspires hope.

On October 14, 2017, Chesapeake Hospitality is sponsoring a “Happiness Inspires Hope” Metric Century bike ride to raise money for Give Kids The World. We will bike 62 miles, stopping at 6 of our local hotel properties, spreading the word and raising funds.  Some of our properties will also participate by biking in their respective areas and recording their rides.

The race begins at 8am at Hotel Indigo, Baltimore -
24 W Franklin St, Baltimore, MD 21201.

Participants have the option of joining in at any of the other Chesapeake properties along the route (they will need to provide their own transportation:)

From Hotel Indigo to Hackerman-Patz House, Towson = 8.5 miles.
Hackerman-Patz House, Towson to Hackerman-Patz House, Gwynn Oak = 13.3 miles.
Hackerman-Patz House, Gwynn Oak to Holiday Inn, Columbia = 16.4 miles. 
Holiday Inn Columbia to DoubleTree, Laurel = 15.5 miles.
DoubleTree, Laurel to Holiday Inn, College Park = 8.6 miles.
Race finishes at the Holiday Inn, 10000 Baltimore Ave, College Park, MD 20740.

Our goal as a company is to raise $100,000 for Give Kids The World.  This is the equivalent of sending 20 families on their once-in-a-lifetime vacation.  This event will bring us closer to our goal!
