Who we are

WE ARE ATHLETES OF ACTION

Athletes of Action is an organization based in McKees Rocks, PA with a mission to perpetuate the legacies of athletes and coaches from our area, and raise money to provide scholarships for student athletes from the Montour and Sto-Rox School Districts. Annual scholarships are based on a graduating senior student athlete's excellence in academics, athletics and community service.

What we do

Athletes of Action hosts an Summer Bocce Tournment each year and a Fall Golf Outing as fundraisers. Our luncheon includes a "Meet, Greet, & Reconnect Social", catered buffet, keynote speakers, door prize give-a-ways and our popular golf packages raffle. Many attendees are current and former athletes, boosters, coaches, and fans from the Greater Pittsburgh and McKees Rocks areas.

Over the last 8 years, we've awarded $34,000 to 31 scholar athletes. In addition, we help sponsor a Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner for needy families and donate to a variety of boys and girls community sports teams. Athletes of Action is able to provide all of these programs because of the support from individuals that attend our yearly activities.
