     Current Fundraisers

PA Polar Pop

Due to the global pandemic, we've gone virtual! 

The PA Polar Pop is an online event open to all.

The PA Polar Pop is a  fundraiser to support Special Olympics Pennsylvania.

For the Polar Pop, Burrr-tual (virtual) plungers are asked to pop a cold water balloon over their head, or get someone to pop it for them.

You can learn more or register for the event here.

Highmark Walk for a Health Community

2021 VIRTUAL Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community registration now open

Highmark Inc. and community members will once again come together virtually across Pennsylvania and Delaware to raise money for over 250 local nonprofit health and human services organizations participating in the annual Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community. 

Online registration for the walk is now open, so participants can take their first step toward completing this year's walk by registering today. This year’s event will mirror last year’s virtual format, coupled with an online fundraising option due to the ongoing COVID-19 virus situation.

Walkers can register and donate now at the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community website, where they can select their walk location and the participating nonprofit of their choice. Highmark organizes and underwrites all costs associated with the event, while the participating nonprofits then keep 100 percent of the funds raised by their supporters.

The Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community, held annually throughout the region since 2003, has helped organizations collectively raise nearly $16 million. Last year, nonprofits in Pittsburgh, Laurel Highlands, Erie, Harrisburg, Lehigh Valley, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and Wilmington, Delaware raised nearly one million dollars in a completely online virtual format.

Participants may take their first virtual steps anytime, by walking on a treadmill, in a park or simply around their neighborhood.

To learn more, visit the Highmark Walk webpageDonations will be accepted through July 15.
