The Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community is an annual fundraising walk that benefits Beautiful Gate Outreach Center (BGOC) and 24 other local health/human service agencies. Highmark Inc. coordinates and underwrites the cost of the walk so that 100 percent of the money raised by walkers goes directly to those participating. The primary goal of the Walk is to help BGOC raise money for our mission and vision.
The inaugural Walk for a Healthy Community took place in Pittsburgh in 2003 and raised more than $25,000 for eight nonprofit organizations. Since then, additional walks have been added in Lehigh Valley, Erie, Harrisburg, Laurel Highlands, Northeastern Pennsylvania (Scranton/Wilkes Barre), and here in Wilmington, Delaware.
