SOPA Athletes Participate In Steelers Family Fest
It was truly an honor for our athletes and members of law enforcement to spend Sunday, August 4th at the 2019 Steelers Family Fest to help welcome football back to Heinz Field for the upcoming season!
The day began with our athletes taking the field to imagine what it's like to play in front of 68,000+ people. They hung out with Special Olympics PA Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) officers from throughout the area, played catch with members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and practiced field goal kicking. After that, they enjoyed lunch and then headed down to the tunnel where they were led onto the field by Coach Mike Tomlin, walking side-by-side with Steelers players! Our athletes and members of LETR remained on the field for the national anthem before heading to their seats to watch the rest of practice.
Thank you to everyone who played a part in this truly unforgettable day!
