From Lauren Kirschman, Penn Live:
Former Pittsburgh Steeler Brett Keisel handed out medals to patients at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC on Wednesday.
The ceremony was part of the celebration for the second annual Walk for Children’s, benefitting the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation. Medals were handed out to patients who likely won’t be able to attend.
The walk includes a patient champion parade and will be held at Flagstaff Hill in Schenley Park on Saturday, June 3.
Patients, families and members of the hospital staff gathered for the ceremony. Keisel greeted and interviewed each patient champion before presenting them with a medal. He also interacted with and signed autographs for patients and families before and after the event.
“I’m always inspired by these champions here in front of me. I’ve had the opportunity to meet and get to know a few of them. … It’s an honor for me.” – Keisel
