This event has been modified to a Virtual Walk! Participants’ safety - as well as the safety of all volunteers and the broader communities of which Highmark serves, is its top priority. With the recent updates by the CDC in regards to mass gatherings; Highmark has made the decision to modify all seven of the 2020 Highmark Walks for a Healthy Community to an online-only fundraiser and virtual walk for this year’s campaign.
Changes for the 2020 Highmar Walk for a Healthy Community:
- A virtual walk is a real walk, but it’s on your terms! Anytime between May 9 – 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 to keep up the momentum of individual fundraising, we have lowered the minimum amount raised to receive a t-shirt to $15 before June 30, 2020. (previous amount $30) T-shirts will be distributed to organizational leaders in July.
- Highmark will continue to offer (1) raffle ticket for every $50 raised. Raffle chances are tracked online within the individual walker milestone tracker 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.
Every cent you donate or raise will help Achieva provide life-long supports for people with disabilities in their community.
As further details become available from Highmark Achieva will post them. Virtual walkers can register and donate at the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community website. If you have any questions, please contact Kelly Reynolds at 412.995.5000 x460 or email@example.com.
