The PA Parks and Forests Foundation Wednesday announced it will participate in the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community, presented by Highmark Health, in Harrisburg on May 20 at Harrisburg Area Community College.
The Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community is a fundraiser that benefits 48 local nonprofit health and human service agencies, including Pennsylvania Parks and Forests Foundation. Participants can choose to join the 5K or One-Mile Fun Walk.
Highmark Harrisburg underwrites the cost of the walk so that 100 percent of the money raised by PPFF walkers goes directly to support PPFF’s goal of conserving our state parks and forests for future generations.
“This is a great opportunity for park and forest enthusiasts to show their support by forming a team, signing up to walk or making a donation,’ said Marci Mowery, President of the PA Parks and Forests Foundation. “We applaud Highmark for their generous support of so many nonprofits across the state.”
“Highmark is excited to once again support the local health & human service organizations of the greater Harrisburg area for the 12th consecutive year, with the Walk for a Healthy Community Event,” said Brandon Berns, Sr. Community Affairs Analyst, Highmark Health. “The walk provides a platform for each participating organization to raise funds for their very important missions.”
