Pittsburgh Penguins 6.6K Run & Family Walk
The Mario Lemieux Foundation and Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation partner each year to celebrate the start of the Pittsburgh Penguins season by holding the Pittsburgh Penguins 6.6K Run and Family Walk presented by Highmark! Since the event’s first year in 2013, over $800,000 has been raised for the cancer research and patient care initiatives of the Mario Lemieux Foundation and the youth initiatives of the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation.
In 2018, over 6,100 participants took to the streets to celebrate the start of the 2018-2019 Penguins season. The 6.6K course started and ended at PPG Paints Arena and featured a high-five from Mario Lemieux at the finish line!
Information for the 2019 Pittsburgh Penguins 6.6K Run and Family Walk presented by Highmark will be available in July 2019.
