Annual GBMC Father’s Day event raises $101K for NICU

The Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC) announced Tuesday its 34th annual Father’s Day 5K and 1 Mile Fun Walk raised $101,392 for GBMC’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a level III NICU which cares for about 400 premature and critically ill babies annually.

All proceeds raised from this event go toward acquiring specialized equipment, implementing new programs, providing quality facilities, and hiring additional experienced clinical staff to continue offering a safe and comfortable space for patients and their families during these difficult times. The NICU works as a team with other disciplines at GBMC, ensuring each infant gets well-rounded care. This contributes to GBMC’s dedication to providing the highest quality care possible to each and every patient, no matter what stage of life they are in.

This year, 610 people registered for the Father’s Day 5K and 1 Mile Fun Walk. Participants had the option of registering individually or as a team for the in-person event at GBMC’s campus or as a virtual participant to run at home to support the NICU.

GBMC was recently recognized as one of America’s Best Maternity Hospitals in 2022 by Newsweek, based on medical key performance indicators and patient survey results.
