CHILDREN CAN TAKE PART IN "ON YOUR MARK WITH HIGHMARK YOUTH CHALLENGE"
"On Your Mark with Highmark Youth Challenge" encourages children to take part in the City of Pittsburgh Community Footrace Series by offering free registration to The Great Race 5K in September. Each child age 6 to 12 who completes one 5K footrace in the City of Pittsburgh Community Footrace Series — or each youth age 13 to 18 who completes two of the community footraces — receives free registration to The Great Race 5K courtesy of Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield.
