Highmark Walk for A Healthy Community
Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community
Saturday, May 17th, beginning at Stage AE, North Side
The Food Bank will be participating in the 12th Annual Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community, sponsored by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield. For the past 11 years, Highmark has held a fundraising walk to benefit local health and human service agencies within Pennsylvania.
Participants who want to help fight hunger can register to walk for the Food Bank, or for any one of several of the Food Bank’s member agencies. Funds raised by the agencies go on their Food Bank account to purchase extra food for the families they serve.
All walkers need sponsors - if you are not able to walk, you can always participate by sponsoring a walker.
Because Highmark underwrites the expenses of the Walk, 100% of the money that you raise will benefit the Food Bank or the food pantry that you designate. Last year, the Food Bank and its member agencies raised more than $20,000.00! As you are most likely aware, tightening budgets and rising costs have made it more difficult for the Food Bank and its member agencies to serve all those who need food assistance. This walk will provide the opportunity to raise much needed funds with minimal effort. Please consider participating this year!
