On Saturday, May 18, 2019, Highmark sponsored the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community (5k Walk or 1 mile Fun Walk). 48 local nonprofit organizations had the opportunity – at no cost to them – to raise awareness, support, and money for their causes. Highmark arranges the event so that charities can keep all fundraising proceeds. bcmPEACE actively participates in this event- it is always our biggest fundraiser of the year!
We partner with Highmark in order to continue to effectively minister and serve the city of Harrisburg. Our 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 when you financially support bcmPEACE, volunteer for bcmPEACE programs, spread the message of bcmPEACE through word-of-mouth, and empower bcmPEACE through your faithful prayers. The Highmark Walk is one of many ways community members may demonstrate their support for our organization- work that includes feeding families through our weekly food distribution, educating community youth in the ways of nonviolent conflict resolution, equipping adults with effectively parenting tools, empowering citizens with computer classes and other useful life skills, and keeping kids safe through our KIDS Club.
We had a very successful fundraiser this year, raising twice as much money as last year! We are also still accepting donations until June 28th- Click here to give to bcmPEACE through the Highmark Walk.
