 Two Easton area teams that walked in last year's Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community were honored with "Golden Sole" awards this week by ProJeCt of Easton for raising the most funds on behalf of the city service agency.

Members of the Palmer Kiwanis Highmark Walk team,
Ken Marino, Santa Wright, Debra Ashton-Chase and
Mike Hahn, earned the Golden Sole Award from ProJeCt
of Easton as the agency’s top fundraising business team in the walk.
The "Golden Soul" award went to First Presbyterian Church of Easton, as the faith group that raised the most funds, and Palmer Kiwanis were given the "Golden Sole" award as the top business fundraising group.

The two honored teams were some of the more than 70 walkers who earned more than $9,000 for ProJeCt of Easton during the charity walk last June. Participants registered for teams supporting ProJeCt, vying for top awards in fundraising dollars earned.

"Congratulations to our winners, and thanks to all who participated and supported ProJeCt’s efforts," said ProJeCt of Easton Executive Director Janice Komisor in an announcement of the awards. "We are very close to our goals of 100 walkers and $10,000 raised, and we would love to have a youth group participate next year to help us meet those objectives."

The 2014 Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community is set to take place on Saturday, May 31 at the SteelStacks campus in Bethlehem, with registration opening Monday, February 3.  Participants may register online and select the non-profit they wish to support.
