UPMC Concussion Center

The UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program, established in 2000, is the region's largest program dedicated to the assessment, management, and rehabilitation of concussion. With more than 17,000 patient visits each year, UPMC concussion experts see high school, collegiate, and professional athletes with concerns about safe return to play following concussion and treatment/rehabilitation of the injury.

Led by clinical and executive director Micky Collins, PhD, the team at the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program continues to set the standards of care, developing concussion management protocols and return-to-play guidelines. The program's researchers have published nearly 200 peer-reviewed studies on concussion – more than any other program in the country.

Cancer Caring Center

Cancer Caring Center

The Cancer Caring Center is a Pittsburgh-based charity that has provided free emotional and social support to cancer patients and families since 1988. Services feature professionally-led support groups (including for breast, brain tumor, lymphedema, colon, head and neck and metastatic) at 17 neighborhood sites, individual and couples counseling and wellness programs (art therapy, reiki, nutrition and yoga) and support and pet therapy for children who have a family member with cancer. The Center is also the only local agency in Western PA that offers comprehensive Young Adults outreach consisting of support, activities and financial assistance and the sole local cancer non-profit that maintains a Food Pantry for uninsured patients.

2016 Rock Steelers Style

Steelers players are accustomed to lights, camera and football, but on Friday night it was lights, camera and fashion when Rock Steelers Style took over Stage AE for the team's annual fashion show.

There were stunning red carpet arrivals, a style lounge featuring the hottest Steelers fashions and country music star Steve Moakler performing, and the highlight of the night…Steelers players and their families taking the runway for the upbeat and energetic show.

“It's always fun, especially since I get to bring my family out and we get to interact with it and have a little fun with it and show our fashion sense,” said Arthur Moats, one of the fashion show co-captains. “My daughters always have a blast with it, stepping outside the box with the fashion. My kids like the glitter and all. But I like to keep a classic look that is sharp and I like to add a little color. We have fun with it. It's an annual event for the Moats family.”

The theme this year was ‘Power & Grace,' and there was plenty of both as the Steelers teamed with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater Corps de Ballet to bring the two together, with the dancers joining the players and their families on stage.

While the event, which was chaired by Art and Greta Rooney and Mike and Kiya Tomlin, was about fun and fashion, it had a much deeper meaning. All proceeds benefited the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program and the Cancer Caring Center, two charities that have a long relationship with the Steelers.

“It's for a good cause,” said David DeCastro, the other fashion show co-captain. “I am not a fashionable guy, but it's not hard to put some clothes on and walk down a runway to help others. It's not asking me much. I am happy they chose me and I can help the cause.”

The show kicked off with welcoming remarks, and then it was time to hit the runway. Platinum recording artist Daya performed her hit song, “Hide Away,” while the latest fashions from the stores at Ross Park Mall were highlighted.

Next up was a style Steelers' fans are accustomed to seeing, the players, many with their kids, wearing their Nike game jerseys. LInebacker James Harrison flexed in his jersey, winning him the coveted Swag Award.

Black and gold is always in fashion, and definitely was featured in the ‘Wear What We Wear' scene, as players and their families sported Steelers apparel that fans can find at the Steelers Sideline Stores, and clothes that made DeCastro more comfortable.

“If I could wear the same pair of clothes every day I probably would,” said DeCastro. “For me personally fashion is not at the top of the list. For some people it is, and I respect that. But I respect what the fashion show means and does for others. It's a great environment, great event. People have fun with it. We have fun as a team getting together outside of football for it.”

The fun continued with Kiya Tomlin's Uptown Sweats line modeled by Pittsburgh Ballet Theater dancers while Daya sang, ‘Sit Still, Look Pretty.' But for most of the night, nobody was sitting still. The action was hot, fun and fashionable.

“I enjoy trying to be different, trying to just stand out in a little bit of fashion,” said linebacker Ryan Shazier. “This is definitely fun. You get to dress up and be yourself and you have your family around. We are a close team, and to do something like this together is a lot of fun.

“It's fun to see guys come out and what they wear. We have some guys who really step it up. Arthur Moats is a smooth and conservative dresser. He has really good fashion. It's a combination of guys who are best dressed. I like to throw myself in there too. It's a combination of guys when everybody wants to dress up.”

And dress up they did. Before the night was over it was tuxedos for the rookies, stylish, high-end suits right out of the players closets, and an array of glamorous gowns from Ross Park Mall retailers gracing the ladies.

“Any time you are able to do anything like this for great cause, you want to be a part of it,” said Moats, whose kids won the Junior Swag Award. “I feel like the Rooney family does a great job with the charitable outreach. They set the standard here.”
