Fit for Her Seattle–Local Women Gather to Help End the Global Water Crisis @ South Park Hall
Apr 27 @ 9:00 am – 12:30 pm

We’re two local women excited to be hosting Fit for Her Seattle–a workout and fundraiser in one.

Event check-in begins at 9 a.m. with a Hiit, plus yoga workout, followed by social time with treats, swag and your choice of coffee or mimosas, or both.

Fit for Her is more than your average fitness event. It’s designed to be one Saturday morning to come together as the local Seattle community, to power up our bodies, and empower our hearts and minds to then help others. Fit for Her wants to encourage women to be a part of something bigger and end the Global Water Crisis.

The Global Water Crisis affects over a billion people each year with nearly 1 in 9 people around the world living without access to clean water. This lack of safe water locks communities, but particularly women and children, into a cycle of poverty by stripping them of their health, dignity and opportunity. It keeps communities under educated, sick and economically stagnant. The lack of clean water and sanitation results in 443 million missed days of school, 260 billion dollars in lost economic opportunity, and nearly 1 million deaths every year. In order for individuals to heal, communities to thrive and countries to develop, the vital need for safe water must be met.

Tickets to Fit for Her Seattle are $30 per person, with every penny going toward clean water projects supported through The Her Initiative.

Laps with Lou to benefit Make-A-Wish @ Pathfinder K-8 School
May 31 @ 9:00 am – 2:30 pm

Retired Pathfinder K-8 PE teacher Lou Cutler returns to the school for his annual birthday run to raise money for Make-A-Wish – this year, 68 laps since he’s turning 68. His announcement:

Each year, as my birthday approaches, I have a pre-birthday celebration by running/walking the number of laps that correspond to my upcoming birthday. This year I will turn 68, and I will run 68 laps – that’s 11.4 miles! I will be accompanied for much of the run by over 500 students, staff and parents from the Pathfinder Community

The run began as a way for me to be thankful for my own good health while also encouraging my students to be physically active and give back to the community. Over the years, we have raised more than $70,000 for Make-A-Wish and I have no plans of stopping!

On Friday, May 31st, at 9:05 A.M., I will enjoy the best day of my year, as I witness the entire Pathfinder community come together to raise money to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

Each year I draw on the bravery and inspiration that I derive from my interactions with Make A Wish kids and families and the fantastic encouragement and support I receive from the Pathfinder community to carry me through the final most difficult miles.
