Highmark walk benefits nonprofits

The Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community was held May 18 at Peoples Natural Gas Field, Altoona.

Highmark Inc. convened several local nonprofits in the 17th annual Walk for a Healthy Community, a series of seven walks scheduled across Pennsylvania (and one in Delaware), with a goal of raising $80,000 in Altoona and Johnstown areas, and $1.65 million in total across all walks.

This was the first year that a walk was held in Altoona in hopes of expanding the community program’s impact to even more areas in the Laurel Highlands region.

Highmark Inc. coordinates and underwrites the cost of the walk so that 100 percent of the money raised by walkers goes to the participating nonprofits.

Participating organizations had booths and activities during the event.

Fundraising can be directed to a participating organization at www.walkforahealthycommunity
