Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community
May 9 - June 30
Join your friends at Pittsburgh Mercy for the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community, an annual fundraising 5K (3.1 mile) walk and one-mile fun walk that benefits local health and human service agencies, including Pittsburgh Mercy’s Operation Safety Net®.
Out of an abundance of caution and for the protection and safety of our Walk participants and volunteers, the difficult decision has been made to modify the 2020 Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community to an online only fundraiser and virtual walk for this year’s campaign.
- A virtual walk is a real walk, but it’s on your terms! Anytime between May 9 and June 30, you choose how and when you walk (treadmill, park or trail, or around the neighborhood). It’s your choice! You also pick the time of when you start and stop!
- This year, the minimum amount raised to receive a T-shirt has been lowered to $15 before June 30, 2020. (The previous amount was $30.) T-shirts will be distributed to organizational leaders in July.
- You receive one raffle ticket for every $50 raised. Raffle chances are tracked online within the individual walker milestone trackers on the Luminate online system. All donations must be credited to the individual walker account by the walk organization by June 30, 2020. Prizes will be distributed in July.
