Engaging communities to encourage better health and wellness
Highmark has always thought in fresh ways and has acted on those innovative ideas to build what might be lacking in the community. When we saw a gap in support for children's grief, we built the Highmark Caring Place, which now has four locations across Pennsylvania. When we recognized the need for overarching support of nonprofit fundraising, we convened the Walk for a Healthy Community, an annual event with six locations in Pennsylvania and Delaware that raises funds for local nonprofit agencies. We also created the annual Fun, Fit and Fabulous Women's Health Conference, which helps to advance healthy lifestyle changes by educating women to make informed decisions about their health and well-being.
Through these and scores of additional programs, our company acts and interacts in a vital, vibrant manner on behalf of our community. Our spirit of employee volunteerism is alive and contagious with thousands of hours committed to community programs each year. Our employees actively engage with people, interacting with those in need at a deeper, personal level, to make a more meaningful, positive impact on minds and hearts.
