Walk with Easterseals at the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community and help us raise funds to support our programs. Highmark underwrites the cost of the entire event so that 100% of the money raised goes directly to Easterseals Eastern Pennsylvania and helps local families!

HOW IT WORKS:
Highmark organizes the walk and we benefit by recruiting walkers for Easterseals. It’s easy and it’s free! REGISTER ONLINE by signing up as an individual, joining an Easterseals team or starting your own team. You must register in order to participate. Create a personal fundraising page and tell your story. Ask friends, coworkers and family to sponsor you or join your team and raise their own funds; spread the word on social media; and ask local businesses to sponsor you. Check out some of our useful Fundraising Tips. All checks should be made payable to Easterseals Eastern PA.

Registered walkers who raise or donate $30.00 will receive a Walk T-shirt from Highmark while supplies last. You must be a registered walker and attend the Walk to receive a T-shirt. In order to qualify, your online personal fundraising page must show under the “I have raised” section a minimum amount of $30.00 by Thursday, June 1st. Because t-shirts need to be ordered in advance, gifts handed in the day of the event do not count toward t-shirt credit. If you want to bring your cash or check donations to our Allentown office prior to Wednesday, May 30th, we can enter them into your online account and your gift(s) will count towards the free t-shirt.
