Because we strongly value community, we reach out through signature programs that are Highmark funded and operated to ensure the health of that community. Here are just a few examples of how we work to do that.
Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community
The Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community is an annual fundraising walk that benefits local health and human service agencies in Pennsylvania and Delaware. Because the primary goal of the walk is to help participating organizations raise money for their individual missions, Highmark underwrites the associated costs of the walk so that 100 percent of the money raised by walkers goes to the participating organizations. Through 2021, the Walk for a Healthy Community events have raised more than $17 million for more than 500 health & human service nonprofit organizations.

The Highmark Caring Place
During the 1990s, we identified a need in the community that wasn't being met — that of grieving children and their families. In 1996, the first groups of grieving children and families were offered peer support services through what would become known as the Highmark Caring Place, A Center for Grieving Children, Adolescents and Their Families. Today, the Highmark Caring Place helps children and their families cope with the death of a parent or loved one at four Pennsylvania locations — Pittsburgh, Erie, Warrendale and Harrisburg. These programs and services are provided at no cost to the families in the communities we serve. Visit The Highmark Caring Place site.
