The 2021 Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community is a virtual walk, meaning that you can choose to walk anytime from now until July 15, 2021.
Highmark is underwriting the cost of the entire event so that 100% of the money raised goes directly to helping local veterans find employment.
Register Online to join Pittsburgh Hires Veterans. You can sign up as an individual, form a team to fundraise or join an existing team. Then join us either virtually or in real life to walk and help make a difference one step at a time, in the lives of veterans in our community who are looking for meaningful and quality work.

Join Pittsburgh Hires Veterans for a small, safe and socially distanced walk Saturday May 1 at 11 am on the Panhandle Trail in Oakdale, PA. We will be meeting at the trailhead parking – (1 Union Ave, Oakdale, PA 15071 – near the post office and across from Helicon Brewery).
Participants can walk either 1 mile or 3 miles going out half the distance on the trail and then turn around to come back. At the end of the walk all participants are welcome to join us at Helicon Brewing to relax and enjoy some camaraderie.
