Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community
May 21, 2016 @ 7:45 am - 12:00 pm
The Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community is an annual fundraising walk that benefits local health and human service agencies.
Highmark Inc. coordinates and underwrites the cost of the walk so that 100 percent of the money raised by walkers goes to the participating nonprofits.
The primary goal of the walk is to help participating organizations raise money for their individual missions. The secondary goal of the walk is to energize community members to have a greater hand in their health by becoming or staying physically active.
The inaugural Walk for a Healthy Community took place in Pittsburgh, in 2003, and raised more than $25,000 for eight nonprofit organizations. Through 2015, the events have raised more than $9 million for more than 250 nonprofits. Since 2009 the event has helped Habitat for Humanity raise nearly $70,000.
