Which Walk Team is Winning?

Hey Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community Walkers, here’s an update on team totals! 

We have a new, first-time team leading the way with a phenomenal $1,605.00!!  Which newbies have raised such an impressive amount you ask?  It's the lovely ladies of RMU Delta Zeta!  You go, girls!

Steadily pacing themselves behind the Delta Zetas is Team Kayla with $930.00.  This long-time team is a force to be reckoned with, having a strong and loyal support system.  Better keep an eye on them Delta Zetas!

In third place is Team Power Pros, with $460.00.  Board Member Dave Wessel leads this team, but will he be able to lead them to the title of Top Fundraising Team like he did last year?

Team Schneck, an ultra competitive fundraising team, is limping along in fourth place with $350.00.  We ask Board President and Team Leader Mike Schneck, what’s going on!?  There’s still time for you to pull ahead! 

And in last place is Team Leverett with $250.00.  Though they may be behind now, we have faith that this virtual team will raise more funds before the day of the Walk.  Keep it up, guys!
