Pittsburgh Pirates Opening Day 2016

Pirates Home Opener 2016
Spring is officially here and Pittsburgh is getting back in the swing of things! (Even if the Burgh’s weather hasn’t quite caught on yet.) It’s the time of year when birds and baseballs fly, raising the city’s spirits with the Jolly Roger. Today, Make-A-Wish® is celebrating the Buc’s home opener, along with the first game of the 2016 Major League Baseball season, with a look back on a few homerun wishes from last season.

Flashback Friday: Sports Wishes that Give Hope

Teddy, Coach Tomlin and Troy
After the great weather this past weekend and more in store, it may be safe to say that summer is finally here. With clear skies and a bright sun, children are more eager than ever to go outside and play.

Beginning June 1, Sports America Kids Month is celebrated to promote healthy thinking and physical fitness among children. Although sports seem to suggest the lessons of winning and losing to children, they provide much more than that. Sports offer physical fitness, mental fitness, sportsmanship, confidence and self-esteem.
