The first Sunday in June marks the annual KEEN Sports Festival. This is the one opportunity all year for every KEEN athlete, their families, and all of our volunteers to come together for a single day to celebrate KEEN. Held at Hadley's Park in Potomac, MD, athletes and volunteers tackle the obstacle course, play games, engage in a tug of war, receive their medals and enjoy lunch. It is an event not to be missed!
Thank you to everyone who helped to make the 15th Annual KEEN Sports Festival an amazing event!
KEEN Greater DC would like to especially thank our event sponsors Potomac Pizza, Drink More Water, Giant, Harris Teeter, Wegmans and Trader Joe's.
