We’re so excited to announce we had yet another successful Highmark Walk this year! Because of your loving support, FH raised over $75,000 through this fundraiser.
We joined for the first time in 3 years for the in-person Highmark 5k Walk for a Healthy Community on the Riverfront in Wilmington. Walkers gathered at Tubman Garret park Saturday, June 11, 2022, despite the chance of rain to support our mission of uniting people facing homelessness with loving, supportive communities they can call home. Thank you Highmark for putting on an incredible event!
We are so proud to announce FH was the top fundraiser for the 3rd year in a row of all 250 non-profit organizations that participate in the Highmark Walk across 7 cities.
FH had over 500 registered walkers with about half showing up for the in-person walk. We posed for pictures, greeted each other with warm smiles, and walked together! YouDee (University of Delaware’s mascot) and Rocky Bluewinkle (Wilmington Blue Rock’s mascot) were there for photo opportunities. Virtual walkers sent in pictures who lived out of state or were traveling for the weekend.
Thank you to the 22 local faith communities who formed an FH walk team or made a financial contribution. Thank you to our corporate sponsors. Our silver and gold sponsors are featured on the back of this newsletter.
Thank you to everyone who walked or made a financial contribution to the 2022 Highmark Walk! Again, we couldn’t do this without you! Because of you, someone who’s feeling lost, alone, and scared will wake up tomorrow feeling hope they can find a way home. You have become the loving supportive community people experiencing homelessness and houselessness in Delaware need. Thank you!
