We want to ensure that our supporters know this was not a spur of the moment decision. Judy has been planning and discussing her retirement with HEARTH's Board of Directors and HEARTH's staff members for over 12 months.

Highmark Walk is now VIRTUAL – Walk for healthy community and for HEARTH!

The Highmark Walk is still happening with one small change... it's VIRTUAL! Message from Highmark: “Out of an abundance of caution, and for the protection and safety of our Walk participants and volunteers, the difficult decision has been made to modify all seven 2020 Highmark Walks for a Healthy Community to an online only fundraiser and virtual walk for this year’s campaign.” HEARTH’s Message to our Supporters: HEARTH encourages you to walk for a healthy community from the comfort of your own neighborhoods while practicing safe social distances.  Help us spread awareness by taking photos or a video of you walking and post it on our Facebook event page. *Please remember to tag us in photos of your virtual walk using @hearthpgh, #hearthpgh, #highmarkwalkhearth, #highmarkwalk
