What's New at Highmark Inc.

The Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Youth Challenge offers children free registration to the City of Pittsburgh Great Race.

Physical activity is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. That's why Highmark encourages children to be active so they can grow into healthy adults. Children who exercise maintain a healthy weight and feel better about themselves. They also sleep better at night and are more alert in school.

Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield is partnering with Citiparks for the "On Your Mark with Highmark Youth Challenge." The goal is to encourage children to participate in a Citiparks community footrace by either running or walking the 5K distance.

As of June 1, children ages 6 to 12 who complete one Citiparks community foootrace (or each youth ages 13 to 18 who completes two community footraces) will receive free registration to the City of Pittsburgh Great Race's 5K event on Sunday, Sept. 24.

Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield's mission to help people live longer, healthier lives is a commitment to the entire community. It's more than a matter of paying hospital and doctor bills; it's a matter of supporting positive ways to be healthy.
