The morning event is made possible with the support of Highmark, Coca-Cola, Rue 21 and the Allegheny Health Network.

The cost of the clinic is $80 per person and following the morning event, each participant will have the chance to enjoy a catered brunch in the PNC Park Smorgasburgh area and stay for the Pirates game at 1:35 p.m. vs. the Philadelphia Phillies. Registration includes a Lower Outfield Box ticket to the afternoon game and each ticket includes $10 of Loaded Value, good for concessions and merchandise throughout PNC Park.
