Sign your church up for the 2020 Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community Pittsburgh

Saturday, May 9, 2020  VIRTUAL

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 all seven 2020 Highmark Walks for a Healthy Community to an online only fundraiser and virtual walk for this year’s campaign.

Changes for the 2020 Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community

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 all seven 2020 Highmark Walks for a Healthy Community to an online only fundraiser and virtual walk for this year’s campaign.

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.

We 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 much be credited to the individual walker account by the walk organization by June 30, 2020.  Prizes will be distributed in July.

We will waive the $2,500 minimum organization fundraising requirement for 2020.   We realize that many participating nonprofits are experiencing hardships during the pandemic.  We wish to continue to offer your organization an opportunity to fundraise through June 30, 2020.

Communication to all current and previous walkers and donors will be handled by the Highmark Walk director.   Messaging will be sent via the walk email system, placing no additional burden on you, the organizational leader.
