Cam Heyward Uses Birthday to Give Back



Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward turned 30 on May 6, and for the fifth year, the Pro Bowler is doubling his birthday celebration as an opportunity to give back to the community.

In a press release Monday, it was announced that Heyward will be hosting his fifth annual The Heyward House Birthday Bash on Tuesday, May 14. Heyward will celebrate with area children benefiting from his foundation, as the event will support The Boy and Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvannia.

Heyward will be joined for the festivities by some of his Steeler teammates, as they host a birthday party for the kids. They will play games with the children, serve them dinner and share birthday cake and cupcakes.

The event will be held at Dave and Buster’s in Homestead, beginning at 4:15 p.m.

One of the Steelers’ most impactful leaders on the field and in the community, Heyward is delighted to be able to share his birthday celebration with local children for another year.

“I am very excited to be able to celebrate my 30th birthday party with children from the Boys and Girls Clubs,” Heyward said.  “Having this opportunity to spend time with the children that we work to support in our community mean the world to me and is one of my favorite days of the year.  We are going to have some fun and a great afternoon for these deserving kids.”

The Heyward House was started in 2015 to help underprivileged children in the Pittsburgh area.

Heyward is coming off a Pro Bowl season where he accounted for eight sacks, ten tackles for loss and 18 QB hits.

Drafted out of Ohio State with the 31st overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Heyward is entering his ninth season with the franchise.
