Steelers Defensive End, #91, Aaron Smith, was joined by the entire defensive line, more than a dozen players and their families, to make up Team Elijah in this year's Light The Night Walk.   The team was formed in honor of Smith's six-year-old son, Elijah, who was diagnosed with leukemia last year.


“It  was an amazing night,” said Tina Massari, Executive Director of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Western Pennsylvania & West Virginia chapter, who said the walk raised $600,000, with Team Elijah as one of the top fundraising teams. “Whenever you have someone like  Aaron Smith saying this can happen to anyone and our family is involved and we  want to be a part of it and join us it’s always a huge call to action. People  think he is a Steeler, he is involved and it can happen to him it can happen to  anyone and we want to help out.”
