Celebrating 50 years of making our communities well with 50 acts of wellness

Raise The Jolly Roger: Positive Role Models for Pittsburgh Youth

When: Tuesday, October 2

Where: Pittsburgh, PA

From school to sports – our next RA50 event was with the Boys & Girls Club of Pittsburgh on October 2, where we took 16 teens to a Pittsburgh Pirate batting practice.  The field trip, courtesy of Rite Aid, taught the teens important health tips and allowed them to meet with Andrew McCutchen from the Pirates team!

Our Rite Aid team also distributed 30 Teen Health and Beauty kits to the group, filled with wellness, beauty and personal products.  The teens got to stick around for that evening’s game against the Atlanta Braves and had a great time cheering on the Pirates, who did not disappoint as they were crowned with a 5-1 win.
