The kids started the pop-up event at the 11th street basketball courts where Nate Mycyk taught the younger groups how to play basketball and played full games with the older groups.
After Basketball the kids in smaller groups toured Muscles Gym and tried some of the equipment. Zajac shared with the kids about being healthy and when youth can start to lift. He also was asked to demonstrate how much he can lift and with ease deadlifted 500 lbs for the kids.
At Police Station Pizza, Burzese and his staff let the kids come behind the counter and made them "to order "pizza. While the pizza cooked he answered questions, let the kids pretended to be workers and take multiple orders. The kids also tried to see how fast they can put together a pizza box without looking.
The kids also got to meet Emma Honcharski, a reporter from the Pittsburgh Post- Gazette, she shared with them her path on how she became a reporter.
Prizes for good behavior were donated by Curt Martin, owner of Fred's Divot .
