Steps In A Safe & Healthy Direction: 5K Run, 1-Mile Walk & Health Fair, October 3, 2015

This October, Johns Hopkins Bayview will host “Steps in a Safe and Healthy Direction,” a 5K run, 1-mile walk and community health fair. Join us on our beautiful 130-acre campus and learn about how to make your lifestyle healthier.

Saturday, October 3, 2015
Registration/Health Fair: 8 a.m.
Race/Walk Kick-off: 9 a.m.

5K Registration – $30 before September 25; $35 after September 25

1-Mile Walk Registration – $15

Race timing will be provided by Charm City Run. Awards will be given to overall top male and female runners, as well as the top male and female runners in specific age groups.

If you choose to run, the course will take you through the campus, on to Lombard Street and back on to campus. Walkers will enjoy a scenic stroll around our park-like campus. Participants are encouraged to fund-raise, which will benefit Johns Hopkins Burn Center Community Outreach and Education Programs (see below).

If you prefer not to run or walk, join us at the health fair–featuring more than 30 Medical Center services and community agencies offering demonstrations, healthy snacks and quality health information. Activities and entertainment also will be provided for children, including face painting, the Charm City Roller Girls and a visit from the Baltimore City Fire Department.

Johns Hopkins Burn Center Community Outreach and Education Programs

The Johns Hopkins Burn Center—Maryland’s only regional burn center—provides various outreach and educational programs for the general public and health care personnel throughout the state and region. Programs include fire safety and burn prevention education at schools, senior centers and community group meetings. Training for health care personnel is held on-site at the Johns Hopkins Burn Center or by request at regional hospitals and health care facilities.

For more information about these programs, call 410-550-4791.
