June 7, 2014 - For the ninth year, more than a thousand people made the trip to Presque Isle State Park for the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community.

The annual walk is one of five taking place all across the state.

The goal is to get people in the community up, active, and healthy.

Pennsylvania's fundraising goal is a million dollars, and locally, officials tell us they're hoping to raise a few hundred thousand.

The interesting part about this walk is that the money raised goes straight towards helping out nearly 30 deserving organizations.

Our very own Sean Lafferty had the pleasure of being the emcee for this walk for a good cause.
