Alleghenies United Cerebral Palsy (AUCP) is excited to be participating in the 2022 Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community. This year marks our 7th year participating in the Laurel Highlands walk and our third year participating in the Pittsburgh walk.

All funds raised support our Community Fund, which exists to give back to members of our community experiencing financial need. 

The last two years, despite the circumstances of COVID-19, were our most successful years to date! We are asking you to consider supporting us in making 2022 an even more successful year! Below you will find more information about how you can support AUCP in 2022 Highmark Walk!

Here’s what to do:

  • Donate and/or walk with us: Follow the links below to register to join an existing team or create your own. Then, raise funds to support your team and join us for the walk at either location.
  • Share: Support from outside agencies and individuals is our biggest help when it comes to the Highmark Walk. Start sharing about the walk (in-person or on social media) with your coworkers, friends, and family. Get them excited about joining your team!
  • Recruit: Grow your team by asking friends and family to walk with you! The Highmark Walk offers many incentives throughout the campaign and on walk day. AUCP even offers a few incentives when you choose to walk with us. The more team members and funds raised, the higher the chance of being a winner!

Thank you in advance for your contribution. We look forward to having you as a sponsor of the 2022 Highmark Walk!

Why is your participation so important?

All of the funds raised during the AUCP Highmark Walk weekend go toward grants for members of our community experiencing financial need. This includes sponsoring scholarships for high school seniors pursuing college degrees in human services. 

Every $2,000 that is raised allows us to provide grants to community members each quarter!

Every $1,000 helps us sponsor a family during our Holiday Blessings drive and/or sponsor a scholarship for a high school senior pursuing a human service degree.


Help us reach our goal of raising a total of $7,500 in making an impact on the community. We also have a friend-raising goal of 10 teams and 105 walkers registered!


If you raise at least $30 you will receive a commemorative 2022 Highmark Walk t-shirt AND a customized 2022 AUCP t-shirt.

  • $250 & more: Company logo and recognition on our social media and website
