Hey Hopewell and Pittsburgh friends and family! On Sept 11th there will be a community wide gathering to celebrate Team USA's Bronze Medal. I would love for you to come out with your young athletes to join in the excitement!
Thank you to the countless volunteers led by Dave Buffalini that are coming together to make this event so special for all in our amazing community.
