Time's running out!!
Don't be left out of the Propel Schools Foundation inaugural Trick or Trot Race!

Coordinate your costumes as a team or simply register as an individual for a morning of health and wellness. DJ Maffei will spin the tunes to get us energized and ready for the first race! Take some time to recover after your race by picking up a complimentary post-race snack, visiting our on-site food truck and sponsors' booths, and learning more about our event beneficiary, "Propel Partners in Wellness!"

Your last chance to register is Sunday, October 24th.

Propel Schools scholars, families & PPIW staff joined health expert and television host Dr. Mehmet Oz at UPMC's ‘Race to Beat Cancer.'

Moments like these are evidence of the holistic approach we take in education and the encouragement that scholars become actively involved community members. We were #PropelProud to be a part of this event in support of women's cancers research and patient care at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center, Magee-Women's Hospital, & Magee-Women's Research Institute.


After being selected as a "Safe Routes to School" Champion School last year, Propel Hazelwood was honored to once again participate in the City of Pittsburgh's "Walk To School Day!" Walk to School Day is an international holiday celebrated in October each year that is a simple starting place for getting scholars started safely walking to school, and introducing schools, families, and community groups to Safe Routes to School. We strive to encourage the formation of healthy habits that will positively impact our scholars as they continue beyond Propel Schools. This event reinforces awareness around getting to school in people-powered ways that are good for our health, environment, and communities. Many thanks to Police Chief Kudrov for accompanying Propel Hazelwood scholars on their safe walk to school!
