Highmark Walk – Walk for Health, Walk for bcmPEACE

What would you typically be doing on a Saturday morning? Sleeping in? Running errands? Watching cartoons? There’s a Saturday in May where something extraordinary is happening, and you can be part of making positive changes in South Allison Hill and beyond.

Saturday, May 20 at Harrisburg Area Community College, Highmark will again sponsor their life-giving Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community, where more than 40 local nonprofit organizations have the opportunity – at no cost to them – to raise awareness, support and money for their causes. Highmark underwrites the event so that charities can keep all fundraising proceeds. Brethren Community Ministries is one of those organizations, and the Highmark Walk is our biggest fundraiser of the year!

By becoming a Walker, a Team Leader, or a Virtual Walker (fundraising partner), you are helping bcmPEACE to continue and even increase its effective ministry in the city of Harrisburg. bcmPEACE’s mission is to serve “Allison Hill in becoming a safer, healthier community, empowered by God’s peace.” This mission is achieved by ministry partners like you as you financially support bcmPEACE, volunteer for bcmPEACE programs, spread the message of bcmPEACE through word-of-mouth, and empower bcmPEACE through your faithful prayers and service. The Highmark Walk is one of many ways to demonstrate your support for the work of bcmPEACE; work that includes feeding families, educating community youth in the ways of nonviolence, guiding parents, empowering citizens with computer classes and other life skills, and keeping kids safe through our Kids Club.
