Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community
Dates:Saturday, May 18, 2019
Title:Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community
Description:The Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community is an annual fundraising walk that benefits local health and human service agencies. The primary goal of the walk is to help participating organizations raise money for their individual missions.

One hundred percent of the funds raised through this event go directly back to the participating organizations. In 2019, we will hold walks in seven different locations: Pittsburgh, Johnstown/Altoona, Harrisburg, Lehigh Valley (Allentown/Bethlehem Area), Erie, Northeast Pennsylvania (Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Area) and Wilmington, Delaware. Most locations feature a 5K Walk beginning at 9:00 am and a one-mile Walk. Events are held in May and June each year.

Proceeds from the sales of the shoes collected in our shoe drive will be used to feed, clothe & house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send her son to law school. We are excited about our shoe drive! We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to us. By doing so, we raise money for our upcoming cheer season, and we have the chance to help families in developing nation's who need economic opportunities. It's a win-win for everyone.
