Clayton Guyaux, Avery Guyaux, Andrew Meyers, Kira Meyers, Reese Ruttenberg and Brooklyn Ruttenberg were among the Shady Side Academy students honored by Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation on May 8, 2019.

Shady Side Academy students were honored by Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation for stepping up efforts to help sick children.

The SSA Striders team, consisting of students and teachers, raised nearly $25,000 for the 2018 Walk for Children’s and plans to participate again in the 2019 walk on June 1.

The team earned the Youth Fundraiser Award which honors the generous spirit of children ages 18 and younger.

“We could not be more grateful for the success SSA Striders achieved last year and the example they set, which I hope others will be inspired to follow,” Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation President Rachel Petrucelli said.

Six student members of the team’s 2018 young leadership committee attended the foundation’s Corporate and Community Giving Recognition Dinner on May 8 at Rodef Shalom to receive the award.

They are: alumnus Clayton Guyaux, juniors Avery Guyaux and Andrew Meyers, freshman Kira Meyers, sixth-grader Reese Ruttenberg and third-grader Brooklyn Ruttenberg.

The 2019 Walk for Children’s will begin at 10 a.m. June 1 at Schenley Park.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
