About This Activity

Join residents and local businesses from the communities surrounding Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, as well as hospital employees and their families, for a morning of exercise and family fun!

“Steps in a Safe & Healthy Direction,” a 5K run, one-mile fun walk and community health fair, will be held Saturday, September 20, from 9 a.m. to noon on the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center campus (no rain date).

Music, entertainment and activities for children will be provided, as well as a health fair, providing information on health and wellness, prevention and access to health care. You'll also be able to have general health questions answered by medical professionals.

Donations to the Johns Hopkins Bayview food pantry will be accepted when you pick up your race/walk packet. Contributions of canned fruit, tuna, condensed milk, rice and cereal are especially needed. The food pantry provides eligible patients and community members with an emergency bag of groceries that provides three days’ worth of full, healthy meals.
