Regatta Beneficiary Spotlight: Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital

Each year, RCM&D selects regional, deserving nonprofits as the beneficiaries of our year-long fundraising and volunteer efforts. The culmination of those efforts is celebrated at our annual Regatta, a waterfront celebration held on Baltimore’s scenic Inner Harbor. Learn more about the Regatta here. Leading up to this year’s event, we will highlight one of this year’s beneficiaries and the amazing work that they do in our communities every day. 

About Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital

How the Regatta Will Help

Funds from the RCM&D Regatta will be allocated to Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital’s Fund for Families. This fund ensures that all parents and caregivers, regardless of their financial situation, have everything they need for their child to not only survive, but thrive. The fund provides relief to families so they can focus on what’s most important – caring for their child. 

The Fund for Families provides supplies such as transportation vouchers, gas cards, food, clothing, household goods, and professional parent mentors for families.
