Join the DGS Team in the Highmark Walk

Delaware Guidance Services is pleased to once again be a partner and beneficiary of the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community 5K, which will take place on Saturday, June 3 at Bellevue State Park in Wilmington. DGS is one of 23 non-profit organizations chosen to participate in this walk.

Highmark Walkers

Please plan to join us! We are hoping to get as many walkers and teams on board for this event as possible. All proceeds from our registrations and sponsorships go directly to DGS and will support the outpatient mental health counseling that DGS provides to at-risk children and youth. You can register to walk for DGS at https://www.walkforahealthycommunity.org/whc3/wilm/index.shtml or use the easy-to-find link from our homepage.

The event includes a 5K walk and a one mile fun walk. The course is comprised of patch gravel, nature trails, and a fitness track, and it is fully handicapped accessible. Participants are permitted to run the course although it is not a sanctioned event and will not be timed. There are also the options to be a virtual walker or a remote walker, so anyone anywhere can participate! Walkers who raise or donate $30 or more will receive a t-shirt.

The walk will also feature fabulous entertainment including music, yoga, stretching, and other elements to warm up the crowd. There will be refreshments and an information area.

As usual, four-legged friends are also welcome to do the walk, too!

Please help us make the most of this opportunity so we can help more children realize brighter futures. Registration for the walk is open right up until the morning of the walk so you can even register in person that day at the DGS table. Registration begins at 7:45 a.m., the 5K walk begins at 9 a.m., and the one-mile fun walk begins at 9:15 a.m.
