Bridgeway supports innovative business models for social entrepreneurship.
Former NFL player Christopher “Steel” Edmonds recognized the obstacles low-income communities face in living a healthier lifestyle and wanted to take action. He founded Athletic Trauma Unit (#ATU) to remove financial barriers to health and fitness. #ATU provides family-oriented exercise classes, fitness training, and nutritional coaching at no cost. To continue fighting obesity in underserved areas #ATU realized that residents needed a healthy alternative to fast-food. Bridgeway helped #ATU finance a food truck to bring healthy, affordable food to neighborhoods across Pittsburgh. #ATU’s Food Truck is part of a movement rolling across Pittsburgh using alternative approaches to bring nutritious options to food insecure communities.
“Bridgeway helped us bring nutritious options to those who need it most.” – Chris Edmonds, #ATU Athletic Trauma U
