BENEFITING: Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation
PPG Industries is proud to be a Corporate Challenge Partner for the 2013 Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon. PPG's team of runners will be raising funds that will support the greatest needs at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation.
PPG Industries' vision is to continue to be the world’s leading coatings and specialty products company. Through leadership in innovation, sustainability and color, PPG helps customers in industrial, transportation, consumer products, and construction markets and aftermarkets to enhance more surfaces in more ways than any other company.
Childhood is a time of transformation, of energy, and of color. And for a sick child, those things are even more important. When Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh was being built, it wanted to be more than just a world-class healthcare facility. It wanted to make kids better, inside and out. Astorino architects implemented a deep, meaningful architectural methodology named fathom for Children's based on the metaphor of transformation. This design would come to symbolize physical and emotional transformation. No surprise, PPG Voice of Color® also played a vital role in helping to create this unique healing space. Our insights are no accident. Nor are our innovative approaches to color selection for commercial spaces. They're the result of an intense undertaking that combines color science with psychology, sociology and human physiology. They're gained by color styling experts who collaborate with universities, professional and private institutions and conduct primary research. Call it PPG advanced color design thinking. Call it a color transformation.
No matter how big or small your donation, it all makes a difference in the lives of Children.
Thank you all for your support!
