Our gratitude goes out to all the participants of this year's Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community that was held on Saturday, May 14th. Together, we raised nearly $8,000 to help make wishes come true for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. Six-year-old Brody, who wished to go to the Orlando theme parks in 2010, served as honorary chair for the walk.
