Pittsburgh, PA (June 27, 2018) – Howard Hanna Real Estate Services agents, employees and their families participated in the 3rd Annual WALK for Children’s on Saturday, June 23rd.  There were over 5,100 participants and 329 teams who walked with one mission – Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.  Walkers on the Howard Hanna team could easily be spotted in their Hanna green t-shirts printed for the event. Howard Hanna was a Supporter Sponsor of the event with a tent where agents passed out fun things for kids and then green ponchos when rain arrived.

Chairman Hoddy Hanna joined his team for the walk and said, “This is a great day.  To see this many people in support of the sick and injured kids at Children’s Hospital.  We have a great city. I am thankful for our great hospital and proud that so many of our agents and employees are here today for the walk!”

The walk began at Flagstaff Hill in Schenley Park and wound through the golf course for approximately two miles.  The event began with a Patient Champions Parade, in which current and former patients of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh officially started the walk.
