Vincentian is participating this year in the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community event, a fundraising opportunity to support uncompensated benevolent care, where 100% of funds raised will go directly to this need.

 We are inviting anyone and everyone to join us as we walk to help protect Vincentian’s mission, including our Vincentian staff.

Our centennial year brings a number of emotions and challenges to us as a team and an organization. While it is a time for honoring our heritage and celebrating the lives impacted over a century of compassionate care, it is also a time of reflection and intentional realignment as an organization. This realignment includes increasing community awareness and financial support. The Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community event is a great opportunity for Vincentian to raise both awareness and funds, as this annual fundraiser helps participating organizations like Vincentian raise money for their individual missions.

Thank you for the meaningful work you do within our campuses and communities, and for stepping up to support Vincentian in our centennial year.

About the Walk

The Highmark Walk is a peer-to-peer fundraiser, meaning it is an opportunity for all of us to ask our friends, families, neighbors, and extended personal networks to support Vincentian.

The walk itself is Saturday, June 22, 2024, at Pittsburgh’s North Shore, and the fundraising starts NOW. You can support our mission by starting a team, joining a team, participating as an individual – and even better – encourage others within your own networks to start a team, join a team, or participate as an individual.

Anyone can start a team and invite others to join it. Being part of a team is a fun and exciting way to multiply the power of your influence and generate excitement and support for Vincentian’s ongoing mission of compassionate care. All participants will have their own page on the event website that can be personalized and easily shared via social media, email, text messages, QR codes – making it easy to generate donations attributed to you individually or your team.

There are no age or mobility restrictions for the one-mile fun walk; all are welcome, even well-behaved pets! Everyone who is a registered Vincentian participant and walks with us at the event will receive a Vincentian Centennial t-shirt that morning. Walkers who have raised a minimum of $30 will also receive a Highmark T-shirt. Fundraising efforts along the way will be rewarded too.
