ONLINE/VIRTUAL Highmark Walk | #DashAgainstDV2020
May 9 @ 12:00 am - June 30 @ 11:59 pm
Get ready to gather your family, friends, colleagues (and even pups, too!) for this fun walk and help benefit adults and children escaping domestic violence!
UPDATE: Regarding the CDC’s guidelines in response to COVID-19, the 2020 Highmark Walk will be an 𝐨𝐧𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐞 𝐨𝐧𝐥𝐲 𝐯𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐮𝐚𝐥 𝐰𝐚𝐥𝐤.
– A virtual walk is a real walk, but it’s on your terms! Anytime between May 9 – June 30, you choose how and when you walk (treadmill, park or trail, or around the neighborhood) – it’s your choice! You also pick the time of when you start and stop!
– This year, Highmark has lowered the minimum amount raised to receive a t-shirt to $15 before June 30, 2020. (previous amount $30). T-shirts will be distributed to organizational leaders in July.
– Highmark will continue to offer (1) raffle ticket for every $50 raised. Raffle chances are tracked online within the individual walker milestone tracker. All donations must be credited to the individual walker account by the walk organization by June 30, 2020. Prizes will be distributed in July.
Step by step, you can help survivors of DV take a step toward a brighter and more hopeful life.
Last year, you helped raise over $9,000…will you help us go above and beyond in 2020? Lace up those shoes and remember to use #DashAgainstDV2020 to share all of your training updates and/or goals met on social media!
100% of the proceeds raised by Women’s Center & Center benefit our programs and services for survivors experiencing intimate partner violence and their children. You will receive a raffle ticket from Highmark for every $50 raised or donated.
