Every spring, DePaul School for Hearing and Speech participates in the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community. Last Spring, students, alumni, friends and family of DePaul gathered at Stage AE to participate in the Highmark 5k Walk on behalf of DePaul School! This was our most successful year yet with nearly 200 walkers showing their support in their snazzy DePaul SuperHEARo shirts and raising about $20,000! Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield underwrites the cost of the walk so 100% of that will go directly to DePaul School programs.
Team Claire Bear, led by Shannon Thomas was the top fundraising team with more than $6,000! The DePaul Staff proved once again how awesome they were by raising almost $2,000 collectively. David Mayer, Susan Klein, and Ally Thomas were also top fundraisers for the walk. A big thank you to all of the 2018 participants who made this our most successful year yet! We can’t wait to see what we accomplish next year!
Stay tuned for details for the 2019 walk! We hope to see you there!
