For the third year, 300 Men March to mobilize against crime

For the third year, Baltimore men will walk 10 miles across the city on Friday evening to advocate against community violence as part of the 300 Men March.

"The march is also a symbol of endurance. Endurance we believe is needed to keep people lasting in what seems to be a long fight to decrease community violence," the organization says on its website.

The march started in June 2013 in the wake of what the Sun called at the time a "tidal wave of violence" – 40 people shot and 16 killed in 10 days. This May, Baltimore experienced it's deadliest month in 40 years with more than 100 shootings and more than 40 homicides.

Mayor Stephnie Rawlings-Blake announced Friday that she will join community representatives at the event.

The march starts at 6:45 p.m. on Friday at 3300 West North Ave. in the Walbrook neighborhood. Attendees plan to walk from Hilton Street in West Baltimore to North Milton Avenue in East Baltimore and back again, a five-mile trek that will take about four hours to complete, according to the event website.

Participants can register on Eventbrite. Event parking is available at Edgewood Elementary School, Walbrook Junction Shopping Center, and along West North Avenue, according to the 300 Men March website.
