Highmark VIRTUAL Walk for a Healthy Community

 |
May 9 to June 30, 2020

Changes for the 2020 Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community: • 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! • This year to keep up the momentum of individual fundraising, Highmark has 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 KFCP in July and we will get them to you. • Once you register on the KFCP's Highmark Walk page, you can use the tools provided to you to track your progress http://hcf.convio.net/Walk-for-KFCP Highmark will continue to offer (1) raffle ticket for every $50 YOU raise. Raffle chances are tracked online within the individual walker milestone tracker on the Luminate online system. All donations will be credited to your individual walker account by KFCP by June 30, 2020 LOCATION: Your Choice Nature Trail, Neighborhood Park, City Blocks, or Country Lanes. Time: May 9th through June 30th 2020 Let us know where you go! ********************* Happy Friday Walk Organizational Leaders: Attached below is our 18th our weekly update & reminders for the 2020 Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community. Updates & Reminders: MAJOR UPDATE After hearing from many of our organizations as we begin to come out of COVID-19 restrictions; we have made the decision to extend this year’s campaign deadline to JULY 15TH, 2020. This means that all donation pages and websites will be open for online donations & event managers can enter offline donations until this point. I. REMINDERS OF THE VIRTUAL WALK Please remember out of an abundance of caution, we have moved all 2020 Walks 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. Please remind your participants & donors that we will not be gathering at the respective location sites this year for the walk! Please communicate to your participants as well. This year’s Highmark virtual walk is a real walk, but it’s on your terms! Anytime between today and the end of the campaign on 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! Please share your photos and videos of participants walking to the Highmark Walk Facebook page & use the tag #Highmarkwalk 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 July 15, 2020. (previously $30). T-shirts will be distributed to organizational leaders in late July. 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 July 15, 2020. Prizes will be distributed in late July. II.
