Pittsburgh Penguins
Foundation Grant

Allegheny Family Network is proud to announce that in February, 2016 the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation awarded a second grant of $5,000 to AFN to support the continued development of the Fitwits health program.


The Fitwits program, developedby Professor Kristin Hughes of Carnegie Mellon University, is a system of games, health communications and services that enable individuals, families and communities to customize opportunities to adopt and maintain healthier lifestyles. The grant will enable AFN to expand Fitwits, originally begun in April of  last year, to more families and the Family Support Groups throughout Allegheny County.


The Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation is dedicated to actively promoting physical well-being, encouraging team work, stressing the value of education and providing essential life skills to young people in our community. At each Penguins home game, the Foundation conducts a 50/50 raffle with half of the proceeds going to the winning ticket holder and the other half being distributed to various nonprofit organizations in the community.

AFN is honored to be among those nonprofits that will benefit from the generosity of the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation.
