Saint Vincent College will extends its campus hospitality to the Pittsburgh Steelers players, coaches, staff and thousands of fans annually.
Annual Charity Walk and the Chuck Noll Foundation
Since 2017's inaugural event, the Annual Steelers Charity Walk benefits The Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research. The Steelers launched the Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research in 2016 to support continued research and education regarding brain injuries and treatment of sports-related concussions.
Under Noll’s leadership during his 23-year coaching career, the Steelers became the first team in
NFL history to win four Super Bowls. Noll’s commitment to the well-being of his players
ultimately led to the development of the ImPACT test (Immediate Post-Concussion
Assessment and Cognitive Testing) used by NFL team doctors since 2007, and
now internationally used to help monitor
concussions for athletes at all levels.
The foundation funds research that it believes is the most promising in the area of sports-related
concussions and related conditions. To help best evaluate which research programs to fund,
some of the most renowned neurosurgeons in the country serve on a national medical advisory panel.
The two mile walk, which will begin at 9 a.m. and will follow the Winnie Palmer Nature Trail on the Saint Vincent campus.
Registration and additional information is available at www.steelers.com/charitywalk.
