Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community

THANK YOU to everyone who attended & supported this year’s Highmark Walk. Check back for information on the 2018 event!

This annual event sponsored by Highmark, Inc. helps Variety raise awareness and funds to carry out its mission of enabling children with disabilities to live life to the fullest.

It is a place where our kids can truly “show their abilities to the world” and share a fun-filled day with their friends and family. Variety kids are even encouraged to bring their adaptive bikes to ride in the walk!

How You Can Help

Interested parties can register as an individual or as a team. Can’t attend the walk? Become a Virtual Walker! Virtual Walkers are those who want to raise funds and be a part of the Variety team (solely online), but are not able to walk with us at the actual event.

There is no cost to register for the Highmark Walk (though any funds raised will help us, help more kids). Everyone that registers will also receive a free (red) Variety t-shirt!

Our aim is simply to bring together as many Variety families and friends as possible to highlight our kids and bring awareness to the work that we are doing to provide opportunities for kids to discover their possibilities.

Fundraising Tips

  • Set a fundraising goal of $50,$25… It’s as easy as asking a few friends for $5. Every dollar will count and help.
  • Donate yourself. It shows your commitment to the cause!
  • Ask everyone; friends, family, co-workers and other in your community.
  • Ask easy and often so you are not rushed in trying to reach your goal.
  • Create a team. The best way to raise a lot of funds is to build a “friends and family” team or a company team.
  • Use the tools provided on the online system where you registered. You can create a webpage for yourself or your team, send out e-mails with a link to everyone you know and track your progress.
