Members of the Community at Holy Family Manor will hold their annual “Mini Walk” on the organization’s campus in Ross Township at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 7.

The event is held each year as a lead-up to the organization’s participation in the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community on Pittsburgh’s North Shore later in the week.

Participants in the inter-generational Mini Walk will complete a tree-lined, 1/4-mile course on foot, in strollers and in wheelchairs.

Participants will include residents, students, staff and volunteers from Holy Family Manor’s Personal Care and Memory Care Unit, Nazareth Housing Services and the Mt. Nazareth Learning Center.

People who attend the event will have an opportunity to make a pledge in support of the participants.

Money raised from this year’s walk will be used for a prayer garden that includes a generations statue of the Holy Family with grandparents Joachim and Anna.

Some of the donations also will be used to replace the fencing around the playground at the Learning Center.

The campus is located at 301 Nazareth Way.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
