The Mayor of Pittsburgh declares June 13th “Tunch and Wolf Day” in honor of the previous Steelers

PITTSBURGH – On Sunday, the City of Pittsburgh honored former Steelers Tunch Ilkin and Craig Wolfley by declaring June 13th to be Tunch and Wolf Day.

Ilkin and Wolfey were recognized for their dedication to the Light of Life Rescue Mission and service to the Pittsburgh community. The two former Steelers began the mission 35 years ago and continue to provide it.

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto announced the day before the 19th annual Tunch & Wolf’s Walk for the homeless.

Ilkin recently retired from the Steelers. Last October, he announced his diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
