Family Services of Western Pennsylvania is pleased to announce the return of the Schenley Shuffle 5k Run/1- Mile Fun Walk presented by Open Your Heart to a Senior and the University of Pittsburgh Student Occupational Therapy Association. The Schenley Shuffle will be held on Saturday, September 26, 2015 at 9:00 am at the Bartlett Shelter in Schenley Park in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood.

In addition to the 5K run and 1-mile walk, the morning's activities will include warm-up stretches led by a local yoga instructor and "hula hooping" at the finish line. A $50 gift card will be given to the fastest female and fastest male runners. In additon, all participants will receive a commemorative Schenley Shuffle t-shirt.

Participants are encouraged to register at the rate of $25 on the event website.
