What is the Highmark Virtual Walk?
A virtual walk is a real walk, but it’s on your terms! Anytime on June 12th 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!
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.
