Walk A Mile In Their Shoes: Benefitting GBMC's SAFE/DV program

The Sexual Assault Forensic Examination (SAFE) and Domestic Violence (DV) Program at GBMC is the region’s most comprehensive sexual assault, abuse, and domestic violence center. In a confidential, non-judgmental setting, forensic nurses and victim advocates treat people of all ages at no cost to the patient. In addition to providing around-the-clock medical and forensic services, the program works to re-empower survivors and begin the healing process. The team also provides resources and trainings to put an end to sexual assault, child abuse, and intimate partner violence. Support our VIRTUAL event! Start a team and challenge friends and family to walk with you, create a fundraising page and ask for donations, share your participation on social media. Participants will have the option to log their miles from April 1 to April 17 and help us reach our goal to walk a total of 2,891 miles! Click here to get started! 2,891 represents the number of patients who received help from our SAFE/DV Program over the last five years.
