Baltimore running store , Charm City Run, and the number one running compression bracing product, OS1st, will donate superhero themed OS1st compression sleeves to the brave essential staff at Johns Hopkins Hospital, serving their community during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Community service is what we do at Charm City Run,” a spokesperson for Charm City Run said. “Especially now during the coronavirus pandemic, we want our hard-working healthcare professionals to know that they are appreciated for their bravery and self-sacrifice."
The donated OS1st compression sleeves feature medical grade compression designed to relieve aching legs and feet, which can be the result of standing for extended periods of time. Compression garments, like these sleeves, are often worn by medical professionals to help relieve pain in feet, legs, and joints during long shifts.
“We know that not all heroes wear capes,” President of OS1st, Joshua Higgins said. “In the fight against COVID-19 the heroes are wearing scrubs and working long hours on their feet. In addition to this partnership with Charm City Run, we have launched a country-wide, buy-one-donate-one campaign where customers can buy themselves the OS1st gear they need during this time, and for every qualifying purchase we will donate a pair of these superhero calf sleeves to essential workers, including medical professionals in high-demand areas.”
The donation will be delivered by Charm City Run to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland following all relevant safety measures.
