History of the Keystone State Games:

The Keystone State Games are a result of a resolution by Representative Joseph R. Pitts (Chester County) and approved by the Pennsylvania General Assembly in 1980. Keystone State Games Inc., a nonprofit corporation, was formed in 1983 with the help of former Governor Richard Thornburgh so the Games would not be solely dependent on government funding. Since its inception, Keystone State Games, Inc. has attracted over 500,000 participants of various age groups into their events.
