Giant Eagle Kids of STEEL Day
March 1, 2014
11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Join Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon and Let’s Move Pittsburgh for a day of fitness, nutrition and fun.
Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon is teaming up with Let’s Move Pittsburgh for a day of fun at Phipps to celebrate the Giant Eagle Kids of STEEL program. Bring the young explorers in your life to discover nature and visit special stations throughout the Conservatory, where they’ll learn principles of fitness and nutrition through fun activities, including a delicious fruit tasting presented by Giant Eagle.
All activities are included in the price of Phipps admission, and enrolled Kids of STEEL participants will be admitted to Phipps for free with admission of a paying adult or adult Phipps member. Kids of STEEL participants must be accompanied by an adult during the event; one adult may bring multiple Kids of STEEL participants to the event, but an adult’s presence for the event’s duration is required for children to participate.
