What is SparkPittsburgh?

SparkPittsburgh is a campaign orchestrated by Babb, Spark360, WTAE, Springbuk, the American Heart Association, and many more partners coming together to make a big impact on the Pittsburgh area! We are developing an annual calendar of events with different themed health & fitness, leadership development, and community support challenges throughout the year.

In 2019, SparkPittsburgh will include its first rival city challenge with Cleveland, Cincinnati, and possibly other cities. This group of partners has orchestrated SparkPittsburgh for the past 3 years as a pilot program and that campaign continues to build momentum with hundreds of companies participating and partners including the American Heart Association, WTAE, the United Way, the Allegheny County government, and more. We will use friendly rivalry competition including Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals fans as an exciting motivator for Pittsburgh companies and partners.
