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.
This modification ensures that our participating organizations are still able to fundraise, via our online platform; while not putting participants at risk of further spread of the COVID-19 virus in a mass gathering situation. This change is also in accordance with the CDC’s recommendation of social distancing and avoiding mass gatherings.
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.
We hope to have as many virtual walkers as possible! Send us a photo once you complete the walk!
