Thank to everyone who attended the 2017 Step Challenge.

Here is news coverage from the event on WPXI!
We had over 100 runners/walkers and raised over $10,000 for Fineview Citizens Council for community improvement.
What is the Fineview Step Challenge?
A 5-mile Urban Trail Challenge ascending Fineview’s hills, streets and staircases. Among the steps are Pittsburgh’s largest stairset (337 steps) on Rising Main Avenue which is the equivalent of a 17-story building! The course covers 12 public staircases for a total of over 1,600 steps and provides breathtaking views along the way!
This is the council’s largest fundraiser and we are seeking sponsor donations for this year’s event. All proceeds from the event will directly benefit maintaining the stair infrastructures in Fineview and Fineview Citizens Council’s mission.
Title Sponsors: UMPC & HIGHMARK/ALLEGHENY HEALTH NETWORK
