2020 Virtual Highmark Walk
Calling all walkers, we need your help!
Due to COVID 19, this year’s Highmark Walk will be virtual – now what exactly does that mean?
A virtual walk is a real walk, but it’s on your terms! Anytime between May 9 – June 30, you choose how and when you walk (treadmill, park or trail, or around the neighborhood) – it’s your choice! You also pick the time of when you start and stop! You can walk and post about it on Facebook, tell your friends/neighbors, and really anything you can think of to raise awareness.
This year we won’t be able to all walk together, but we can still walk separately in support of Family Promise NNCC. Teams can walk together if they’d like or separately the choice is yours. You can walk 5 miles, a mile, around your block, whatever is most convenient for you. If you’re unable to participate for any reason, but still want to support Family Promise, you can simply donate as well.
Anyone who donates $15 will receive a Highmark Walk t-shirt featuring Family Promise NNCC!
Anyone who would like to be a team captain, please reach out to Tyler, our Development & Marketing Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
Walk captains are responsible for creating walks teams. Captains recruit friends, family, neighbors or anyone looking to support a good cause.

Funds will be used to addressed the current and anticipated substantial increased need within our community for shelter and housing resources. The coronavirus has decimated our workforce – more than 90,000 Delawareans have filed for unemployment. Thousands are unable to pay their rent or mortgages. Delaware Courts were closed up until May 15th – with this closure evictions/foreclosures have ceased. As our Courts re-open and these stays on evictions come to an end, we’re anticipating a mass wave of evictions. Hundreds, possibly thousands of families in our State may have nowhere to go, and as a result may end up homeless.
Any donations received will be used to keep families in housing – a missed rent payment, being evicted? Our Diversion Program can cover that payment and keep a family in housing. Already evicted, nowhere to go? We provide emergency shelter and rapid re-housing support to quickly help families get back up on their feet. Our goal is to keep as many families housed as possible.
