LifeSpan, a Homestead-based agency that serves seniors throughout the Mon Valley and South Hills, is encouraging local residents to signup for Highmark's Walk for a Healthy Community.

The walk will be held May 9 at Heinz Field on Pittsburgh's North Side. This year, the walk will benefit more than 90 health and human service organizations. The 2019 Pittsburgh Walk for a Healthy Community raised $433,328.

All funds raised by LifeSpan will go directly to LifeSpan, a spokeswoman said. Donations may be made through the Highmark website at www.walkforahealthycommunity.org. Select “Pittsburgh” and then choose “LifeSpan.”

LifeSpan's goal is to raise $10,000. For more information,  contact Mike Dunn at (412) 464-1300, extension 145, or email mdunn@lifespanpa.org.
