Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community

Join us at Beach 11 at beautiful Presque Isle as we walk to raise dollars to feed the hungry, educate children, and help people to stay in their homes. Register in advance with the link, or the day of starting at 7AM. The walk starts at 9AM. You can register by yourself or form a team with friends and family. Raise $30 each and receive a t-shirt as well! Donations can be online through the link or given at the event (cash and checks accepted!).

St. Martin Center is one of 28 Erie County nonprofits participating. Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield underwrites the cost of the event so that every dollar you raise for the organization you've chosen stays with that group.

We're very proud to be a part of this event and hope you'll join us!
