The 2014 Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community Erie will take place Saturday June 7, 2014 at Presque Isle State Park. This year's Walk benefits 28 health and human services organizations. One of those organizations is the Warming Center at the Mental Health Association. The Walk is the Warming Center's only fundraising event. The Warming Center provides overnight shelter to homeless persons during Erie's coldest nights. Our Warming Center is now in its sixth year, and this has been the most dangerous of winters in a population already at risk in so many ways.

We are asking for your support in 2014.
