18th Annual 5K – to benefit Pittsburgh Steelwheelers

For 18 years, the Western Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association (WPTLA) has been organizing and holding an annual 5K to benefit a local organization, the Pittsburgh Steelwheelers.  The Pittsburgh Steelwheelers is an amazing group that began in the 1970’s when four men decided to turn their dream of having a Pittsburgh-based wheelchair basketball team into a reality.  Since then the organization has grown and used funds raised by the WPTLA to purchase specialized equipment and motor vehicles to accommodate those who are confined to a wheelchair who wish to keep their athletic drive alive.  This year the event will be held at North Park on Saturday October 20, 2018.  Registration begins at 9:00 a.m.  This is a walk/run/wheel event in a beautiful setting with door prizes, raffle prizes and more!  Click the link below for more details and to register.  We hope to see you there!
