Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and the City's Redd Up crew joined the University of Pittsburgh's Football Team in redding up Dan Marino Field in an effort to clean up the South Oakland area.
More than thirty members of the Pitt Football team are repainting blighted and graffiti-covered structures and removing overgrown weeds, trash and litter. Joining them were the University's vice chancellor for community initiatives, Reynolds "Renny" Clark; Dr. John Wilds, assistant vice chancellor for community relations; Paul Supowitz, vice chancellor for government relations; Chris LaSala, assistant athletic director/director of football operations; Penny Semaia, career/life skills coordinator for student athletes; and Jim Williams, assistant director, city/county government relations.
"I want to thank the University of Pittsburgh Football players, administrators and coaches for their extraordinary efforts here today," said Mayor Ravenstahl. "We are looking to partner with the team for more clean-ups in the future."
Coach Wannstedt, who along with Athletic Director Jeff Long was in Newport Rhode Island for Big East conference meetings and media day, said, "The team enjoys getting involved with the community and I thought this would be a great way to get out there and make a difference. We are all big supporters of the Mayor's Redd Up campaign."
