.@Letang_58 and @EdgarSnyder Partner to Help Local Kids by @msteiner90

The Pittsburgh Penguins' organization is very well-known to produce on the ice having brought five championships back to the City of Pittsburgh.  What we miss, sometimes, is the amazing work that the team does off the ice as well, through both the Penguins Foundation, Mario Lemieux, and also the individual players.

Today, Kris Letang joined Edgar Snyder in visiting the Pittsburgh Allegheny K-5 school in the North Side.  The pair took time to speak to the students about the health benefits of sports and advocate against bullying in sports, which means a lot coming from a three-time Stanley Cup champion and one of the most successful lawyers in Pennsylvania. The duo played some games with the students, and at the end held a small ceremony to present an $11,000 check to Playworks Pennsylvania.

Playworks Pennsylvania serves low-income schools across Pennsylvania through our year-round, on-site support services. Playworks Pennsylvania also reaches thousands more students across Pennsylvania through professional development workshops for schools and youth organizations.

This is just one example, of many, where Pittsburgh athletes and business partner to help grow the sport of hockey and build our community.
