In 2015, P3R became an activity partner for Pittsburgh Public Schools’ Summer Dreamers Academy. Summer Dreamers Academy is a free, premier summer learning camp offered by the Pittsburgh Public Schools to engage students in learning and fun during the summer months. As part of the program, students are given the opportunity to run in the GNC Live Well Liberty Mile.
There are many barriers for urban youth who want to participate in health and wellness activities in the city of Pittsburgh. Whether the barrier is cost, transportation, footwear or adult support, no child should be denied the opportunity to participate.
P3R works closely with the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership as well to help bring health and fitness to the downtown area and to promote the downtown neighborhood.
