From November 13 through December 5, to help raise funds to advance B More Global's mission to grow global citizens in Baltimore and send our students on an educational experience abroad, we will be hosting the 8th annual Patterson Park 5K and Homebrew! This year's event will be packed with all the same activities you've come to expect from our event—including a 5K, 1-mile fun run, homebrew competition, and live music—but this year the event will be taking place virtually. Visit our website for more info.
