BALTIMORE — GBMC will host its fifth annual "Walk a Mile in their Shoes" event virtually through April 4.

Their 'Walk A Mile in Their Shoes' event benefits GBMC's Sexual Assault Forensic Examination (SAFE) and Domestic Violence (DV) Program. The program helps sexual assault, assault, and domestic violence victims and was named the region's most comprehensive program. They offer services to patients across their lives in a confidential and non-judgmental setting, at no cost to the patient.

From now until April 4, GBMC says you can participate by doing the following:

  1. Take a photo or video of yourself walking or running a mile (or more!)
  2. Post the photo or video on any social media platform (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) - use hashtag #GBMCWalkaMile, tag GBMC HealthCare, or email socialmedia@gbmc.org so we can feature you!
  3. Complete this form to let us know how many miles you walked/run so we can meet our goal of 725 miles

If you do these steps then GBMC will deliver you a shirt showing you contributed to the cause.
