Pathfinder K-8 teacher – and students – walking for wishes


lou.jpgNever mind the clouds and mist and drizzle, Pathfinder K-8 students were out walking laps this morning on their Genesee Hill campus to show support for PE teacher Lou Cutler (left) as he celebrates his birthday the same way he does every year – doing those laps to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which helps grant wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses. He does one lap for every year he’s been alive – that’s 57 this year, about 10 miles! This year’s run is also a tribute to 9-year-old Maddy Murakami, a West Seattle girl who died in April; Pathfinder PTSA co-president Eric Baer says, “Lou worked with her and managed to get her wish granted – she wanted to meet Ashley of High School Musical.” We’ll share the results of today’s walk – past editions have raised thousands of dollars for Make-A-Wish — when we get the word from Pathfinder.

    Thanks for the nice coverage – it’s a great event for a great organization. And just to be clear – Lou actually RUNS all of those miles!!!

    I was so proud of the Bat Clan! Most of the kids ran at least 18 laps! Even those these kids ran miles, they still have lots of energy!
