Highmark Walk for A Healthy Community
Join us Saturday, May 30, 2015 at Desales University- Center Valley, PA
At Safe Harbor, we are blessed to have such incredible support from businesses within the communities that we serve. As the new year begins, we hope to expand our network of friends even further! With that in mind, we would like to invite you to participate in a fun, active event to benefit Safe Harbor! We hope you will consider forming a team to participate in the Highmark Walk! This event is a fun, family-friendly way to raise funding and awareness for Safe Harbor.
The Highmark Walk is an annual 5k walk funded by Highmark Inc. The corporation sponsors the event so that 100% of the money donated goes to the nonprofits involved. The walk will take place on May 30th this year at DeSales University. Check-in begins at 7:45 am, and the 5K walk starts at 9:00 am. An alternative 1-mile fun walk begins at 9:15 am.
To register or find more information, visit http://www.walkforahealthycommunity.org/whc3/central/index.shtml. At registration, you will be given the option to choose Safe Harbor as the recipient for any donations you raise. Additionally, anyone who raises $25 or more will be given a free T-shirt for the walk, while supplies last! Papa John's will also be giving away a pizza party for whichever group raises the most money for Safe Harbor!!
By sponsoring Safe Harbor in the Highmark Walk, you'll be making a tax deductible contribution that will help the homeless, while gaining valuable exposure at our event. Last year, the event had thousands of attendees, many of whom have eagerly supported our donors throughout the year.
A $100.00 donation would provide 20 meals ($5.00/meal) to the homeless in our daytime drop-in program. A $100.00 donation could also be used to sponsor 6 nights of shelter for a homeless individual in our emergency shelter. For a homeless veteran or senior citizen, those 6 days may be the difference between life and death from exposure. We truly can’t begin to tell you what a $500.00 donation to this fundraiser would mean to Safe Harbor.
Thank you very much from everyone at Safe Harbor. We hope to see you at the walk!
