Stroud 5k Returns for Children with Learning Differences

Lindsay Stroud was the winner of the Stroud Foundation 5k Race April 22 on the Capitol Crescent Trail.

The Stroud 5K was resurrected after a pandemic pause. It raises funds to help children with learning differences in the Washington, D.C., area.

At the event, Dr. Andrea Chronis-Tuscano who runs the Attention Deficit Hyper-Activity Disorder (ADHD) Department at the University of Maryland spoke of the extraordinary success the videos she recently created with a Stroud Foundation grant which have been translated into multiple languages, including Mandarin, and are being used worldwide to help guide children with learning  differences. Near Fletcher’s Boathouse, Dr. Brooke Stroud, a leading psychologist, introduced her before the runners took off on the Capitol Crescent Trail on the glorious spring morning.

The Stroud Foundation was established in 2008 to honor the memory of Washington, D.C.’s beloved pediatrician, Dr. Frank Stroud. It was co-founded by Kandie Stroud, political author and Democratic media strategist. Dr. Brooke Stroud is the president of the foundation and organized the event.
