Baltimore-based Charm City Run and OS1st have partnered to donate superhero-themed OS1st compression sleeves to the brave essential staff at John Hopkin’s Hospital, serving their community during the coronavirus pandemic.

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.  

“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." 

“We know that not all heroes wear capes,” OS1st president Joshua Higgins says. “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,” he adds. “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 following all relevant safety measures.
