We’re going Virtual!
Celebrate the 11th Annual John K. Gutierrez Memorial Walk with us virtually on:
Saturday, October 24th @ 11am
The John K. Gutierrez Memorial walk is an annual event held to commemorate the legacy of John Gutierrez. Friends, family, and community members gather once a year for a walk through Druid Hill Park in remembrance of John and to help raise funds for the Gutierrez Memorial Fund. The Gutierrez Memorial Fund is dedicated to supporting the arts and community in Maryland. As a 100% volunteer organization all proceeds advance our mission and support our selected Legacy Project.
WHILE AN IN-PERSON EVENT WILL NOT BE HELD THIS YEAR, WE STILL WANT TO CELEBRATE WITH YOU!
JOIN US ON YOUR FAVORITE WALK, IN YOUR FAVORITE GMF SHIRT AS WE WALK “TOGETHER” IN SPIRIT.
The GMF board will be taking a socially distanced walk through our beloved Druid Hill Park and we will connect with you live on Facebook. We hope you will join us at the same time on your favorite walk, hike or run, wherever it may be, and share pics on social media. Use the hash tags: #GMFWalk2020, #Walkinginspirit, & #rememberingjohn.
We will certainly miss all of you this year – but we just can’t cancel! It’s as important to us as ever that we continue to support the arts, honor our traditions and remember John. So, let’s walk The Walk “together” in spirit and celebrate life as John would want us to do.
GMF is committed to supporting the arts in our community. If you are able, please consider making a donation to our virtual Walk so we may continue this important work. Any amount is appreciated and 100% tax deductible.
Need more incentive? We’ve got Raffles!! As a thank you for your generosity and something fun to do on the 24th, we’ve put together some exciting raffles!
