Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community

Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community
St. Anthony's in the Highmark Walk has become a Virtual Walk!
Out of an abundance of caution, and for the protection and safety of our Walk participants and volunteers, Highmark has made the difficult decision to modify the Pittsburgh Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community to an online only fundraiser and virtual walk for this year's campaign.
This modification ensures that our organization is still able to fund raise, via the 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. While this year's Walk for a Healthy Community will be online and virtual only, this approach provides St. Anthony School Programs with a way to safely participate and raise funds for our programs and students.
Details of the changes in regards to fundraising incentives, t-shirt distribution and donation deadlines are provided below.
  • 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!
  • You can still register online and track your donations here.  If you receive cash donations, simply contact Heather Schmuck, Special Events Coordinator for St. Anthony's and she can add the totals to your registration.
  • 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 us in July and then we will make arrangements to get them to our participants.
  • 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 thank you for your continued support of this worthwhile event and the amazing students of St. Anthony School Programs.  Please contact us at 724-940-9020, ext. 104 or via email if you have any questions.
