Pirates Charities set to host third annual Family Walk

Pirates Charities and Allegheny Health Network Partner to Increase Awareness and Reduce Stigmas Around Mental Health

April 15th, 2024

The Pittsburgh Pirates announced today details of the Pirates Charities Family Walk presented by Allegheny Health Network. The event will take place on Saturday, May 25 at PNC Park, and will benefit Pirates Charities and AHN mental health programming and initiatives, in addition to helping reduce stigmas surrounding mental health.

The fan-favorite event will allow participants to take a leisurely, non-competitive stroll throughout the best ballpark in America, where they can take in unparalleled views of the Pittsburgh skyline before finishing the approximately two-mile course on the field at home plate. The Pirates Charities Family Walk was designed with accessibility and inclusivity in mind, and thus will be fully ADA accessible.

Pirates players, coaches and mascots will be on-hand to interact with the community for this unique experience. All participants can stick around to enjoy a post-walk carnival situated on the Highmark Riverwalk, including family-friendly activities and mental health resources.

Fans of all ages can register for the event now at pirates.com/familywalk. All registrants will receive a voucher for two free tickets to any Pirates home game between May 25 and June 23 (excluding June 4-6), and the first 2,000 registrants will receive a commemorative t-shirt. Groups of four or more will receive a discount of $5 per registrant when registering together. Kids in strollers are free. Fans registering before May 6 will also receive special early bird pricing.

On the day of the event, free parking will be available in Red Lot 5 and Red Lot 6 on the North Shore beginning at 7 a.m. and until lots are full, complements of ALCO Parking.

In addition to the presenting sponsor Allegheny Health Network, other Pirates Charities Family Walk sponsors include Giant Eagle, ABARTA, Coca-Cola and Tri-State Office Furniture
