Last fall, we announced our support of a new initiative aimed at improving the health of our area’s children by mobilizing and motivating our community. FitUnited, launched by The United Way of Allegheny County, was a natural fit (no pun intended) with our goal of creating a healthier future for our children.
FitUnited brings together like-minded organizations to support this objective through education and outreach. How? By encouraging healthy eating at youth-serving organizations, increasing awareness of how to choose and access healthy foods, and increasing physical activity, for starters.
And who better exemplifies physical activity than our own Pittsburgh Pirates? This video, featuring Pirate Neil Walker and his teammates, illustrates just how easy it is to be a healthy role model for kids.
