PITTSBURGH, PA (June 1, 2022) – Steelers Nation can kick off the 2022 season with the Steelers Run and Walk, presented by Gatorade! Scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 3, the 34th annual event will feature a 5K race, fitness walk and kids’ fun run that start and finish at Heinz Field, as well as a virtual option. All proceeds will benefit the Art Rooney Scholarship Fund and Chuck Noll Foundation.
“This event has become a Labor Day Weekend tradition for Steelers fans of all ages,” said Lynne Molyneaux, Alumni Relations Manager for the Pittsburgh Steelers. “Participants love the opportunity of crossing the finish line inside of Heinz Field and celebrating all their accomplishments exactly where their favorite team plays. The virtual option also gives Steelers Nation the option to participate from wherever they wave their Terrible Towel.”
All participants will receive a race shirt, finisher’s medal and goodie bag. Registrants will also be entered for chances to win prizes from the time they register to event day, including items autographed by Steelers players and a grand prize trip to the regular season home opener.
The event will continue to benefit the Art Rooney Scholarship Fund, which annually provides a grant to a North Catholic High School student and funds the Pittsburgh Promise scholarships for two North Side students graduating from Pittsburgh high schools, as well as the Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research, which supports continued research and education regarding brain injuries and the treatment of sports-related concussions.
