Mercy has participated in the Lehigh Valley Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community since 2013. The event gives Mercy participants an opportunity to raise money and awareness for our school by forming teams, collecting donations pre-event and then walking either a 3-mile or 1-mile fun lap. The best part is that every penny raised by walkers goes directly to Mercy – 100 percent!
The 2016 Highmark Walk takes place Saturday, June 4, at DeSales University. This year’s event features a 5K walk beginning at 9:00 am and a one-mile walk starting at 9:15 am.
In 2015, Mercy had 62 participants who raised $2,420 for our school and who walked the course at DeSales University in Center Valley. Former principal Sister Janice Johnson and her team were the highest team fundraisers.
