  • Highmark VIRTUAL Walk for a Healthy Community

    May 9, 2020 - July 15, 2020 @ 

    Join us in a virtual walk to make a difference, one step at a time!

    Visit http://hcf.convio.net/manadaconservancy to register to walk, join a team virtually, or make a donation.

    Manada Conservancy is once again participating in the annual Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community, combining forces with fellow area nonprofits to encourage healthy active lifestyles and a healthy local environment.

    However, due to the circumstances this year, Highmark’s Walk has a virtual twist! For the protection and safety of participants and volunteers, we can’t get together for the regular community event. But we hope you will join us online! A virtual walk is a real walk, but it’s on your terms. You still register as a walker in support of Manada Conservancy and can even raise funds to support our mission of protecting the outdoors the same as you normally would.

    To participate, simply...

    * Visit http://hcf.convio.net/manadaconservancy.

    * Register to walk, create a team, or join an existing team.

    * Then, go on a walk wherever you choose (your favorite trail, a local park, around your neighborhood, take your dog!) any day between May 9 and July 15.

    * And, if you’re willing, share with us a photo or video clip from your walk to help encourage others to also join in the fun in support of Manada Conservancy! Share your photos with us on our Facebook page, tag us on Instagram, tweet us, or feel free to email it (office@manada.org) for our sharing.

    Be sure to ask your family, friends, and colleagues to join in the fun by challenging them to also walk in support of Manada Conservancy! They can join as a walker or simply make a donation at http://hcf.convio.net/manadaconservancy.

    Thank you!
