Trian is a six year old first grader
who loves playing hockey and football.
He learned how to skate at the age
of three and started playing hockey
when he was four. When Trian isn't
on the ice or the field, you can find
him at SLB Radio Studios, which is
supported by a Penguins Foundation
Grant. He visits the studio any chance
he gets and loves experimenting with
all the microphones and mixers.
On 10.10, Trian got to visit the Radio
Broadcast Booth in PPG Paints Arena.
Trian met Mike Lange and Phil Bourque
who gave him a behind the scenes look
at what it takes to be on the Penguins
Radio Team. Trian even got the chance
to put his radio skills to work, making
a goal call with Mike's headset.
During the 10th anniversary season,
the Penguins Foundation celebrates
kids like Trian who work to learn
new skills and chase big dreams.
Addison is a fourth grader active
in Strong Women Strong Girls
programming supported by a Penguins
Foundation Grant. Addison loves
playing soccer, swimming and singing
and is also a Girl Scout and does
community service with her troop.
Addison is very philanthropic. Every
summer, Addison, her sisters and
cousins hold a lemonade stand and
donate the proceeds to the National
Ovarian Cancer Coalition — Pittsburgh
Chapter in honor of her Aunt who is a
cancer survivor. Because of all her hard
work, she was Strong Women Strong
Girls’ 2019 Strong Award Recipient.
Addison says, “A strong girl loves,
forgives, moves forward and
perseveres, no matter how hard
life gets! Sometimes, there may be
bullies, even when you’re a grown
up. But being kind and being strong
will help you to never give up.”
At the game on 10.10, Addison joined
Celina Pompeani as the in-game
co-host! They spent the gameday
walking through PPG Paints Arena
interviewing and meeting new people.
During the 10th anniversary
season, the Foundation celebrates
kiddos like Addison who stay
strong and kind in all situations.
