Wear Red Day

If you visit GBMC on March 22, you may find yourself seeing red – from the lights in our main corridors and cafeteria to our decked-out employees. Wear Red Day serves as the official kickoff for our second annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®. Please join us in sporting red, a power color that represents energy and determination, to take a stand against rape, sexual assault, and gender violence.

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is a one-mile walk on GBMC's campus on Saturday, April 22. The event raises money for our Sexual Assault Forensic Examination (SAFE) and Domestic Violence programs, while shifting perspectives about these often-stigmatized issues. Our SAFE and DV programs provide free confidential services that are available to everyone, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Nurses and advocates perform detailed medical-forensic examinations, collect evidence, and testify in court, but most importantly, they treat survivors with compassion and respect.

Get involved by posting pictures of yourself decked out in red to social media using #GBMCWalkaMile and register for Walk a Mile in Her Shoes by clicking here. If you fundraise $200 by March 21, you'll earn a choice of either red high heels or red Converse sneakers to walk in.
