About This Activity

The 27th Annual Gatorade/Steelers 5K Race, Fitness Walk and Kids Kickoff Run will be Sunday, Sept. 6 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

The race benefits the Art Rooney Scholarship Fund and features a level course highlighted by a spectacular finish on the Heinz Field warning track.
Gatorade is the title sponsor and Nike is the official outfitter of the race.  Additional event partners include Dick’s Sporting Goods, Giant Eagle, KDKA-TV 2, WDVE-FM and ESPN Radio 970 and UPMC Centers for Rehab Services.

The Art Rooney Scholarship Fund was established in memory of the late founder of the Steelers, who died in August of 1988 after living most of his life on the North Side. A $12,000 scholarship in Art Rooney’s name is presented annually to a graduating senior from the high schools on the North Side — Perry (two scholarships through the Pittsburgh Promise) and Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic.
Since its beginning, the scholarship has awarded grants to more than 70 local students.
