Dear Participants and Donors:

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 2021 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.

Please reference the Highmark Walk homepage (www.walkforahealthycommunity.org) for more details.
