No one melted.
A little rain can’t stop a collection of determined people who are out supporting their favorite charitable organizations. We had a great turnout at the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community on the campus of HACC, and we reached our financial goal of raising $15,000! Thanks to everyone who helped us finish in 9th place in funds raised out of the 47 participating organizations….and there were some pretty large organizations like Salvation Army and Penn State Hershey Medical Center participating. The average nonprofit raised $7,400, and we doubled that!
Highmark sponsors this event each year, and pays all set-up and overhead costs on behalf of the charities that participate so that 100% of the donations go straight to the organization of choice. bcmPEACE is proud of the overwhelming support our friends showed by coming out in inclement weather to represent us to the wider community and help us raise money. The money raised by this and other fundraising events each year provide leadership, program costs, and community development through our many programs
