Highmark Walk

June 1, 2024
DeSales University

The “Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community” is a family-friendly (pets included!) fun walk that benefits nonprofit health and human service agencies in the Lehigh Valley. We would be honored if you would support our mission by coming out and walking for ProJeCt! 


As a walker, you or a team can fundraise for ProJeCt while improving your health and the community at the same time! Teams can promote their business to thousands of Lehigh Valley community members at this walk that benefits ProJeCt and 20 other local nonprofit health and human services agencies. Because of the unique cooperation with Highmark, every dollar that you provide goes directly to ProJeCt's programs. Those programs range from lifelong learning opportunities (family literacy, GED and ESL classes, life skills classes, and a summer reading program) to meeting basic needs through our food pantry and emergency assistance services. 

Questions regarding the Walk or forming a team, contact the Development Office at 610-258-4361 ext. 25 or

Congratulations to the 2023 Golden Sole Award recipients- Team Palmer Kiwanis!
