September 8, 2018 Update

The @pitt_pt students came out strong yesterday for our second strength & conditioning session of the season.

We started with 30 registered athletes, but 8 couldn’t attend, leaving us with 22 highly motivated & hardworking @mightypenguins!

Diagnoses included Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Lower Extremity & Upper Extremity Amputations, Autism, and more.

Regardless of their condition, these athletes worked as hard as ever & are truly an inspiration to us all!

Not only that, they hit the ice later for practice!

Couldn’t be more proud of what the program has become & huge thank you to my classmates and the UPMC residency staff!

Remember, everyone deserves the opportunity to be strong!
