Local organizations laced up their sneakers and hit Presque Isle for a popular event. More than 1600 people came out to the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community. The annual walk raises money for 23 non-profits.
Nina Ferraro, Highmark Head Community Analyst, explains, “We have Therapy Dogs United. We have Children’s Miracle Network. We have the Caring Place. We have a lot of different organizations here but then we also have a lot of their supporters and their donors and community members that are coming here to help support the community.”
Organizers tell us they should raise more than $100,000.
