Program Details

The Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community occurs annually. The money donated during this fundraiser benefits local health and human service agencies.

Only 60% of our operating costs at DePaul are covered by our state subsidy so your support is vital in ensuring our students have access to the specialized education they need in order to excel in the hearing and speaking world. When you or your team raise money for the Highmark Walk, it directly supports our goals and missions.

Did You Know…
Did you know that 100% of the money raised through the Highmark walk goes directly back to the participating organizations? This means all your donations and money you help raise for the DePaul team will go directly toward our programs.
