Russell Wilson and Kasey Kahne for the third year are hosting a celebrity golf tournament THE DRIVE to support Children’s Hospital and Strong Against Cancer. The tournament is held at Suncadia Lodge June 27 & 28th. The Drive includes a silent and live auction to raise money for Children’s Hospital. Last year Kahne and Wilson presented a $400,000 check to the hospital.
Chevrolet’s driven at the Event are supplied by the Northwest Chevy Dealers and Art Gamblin Motors. This year the Northwest Chevy Dealers donated an officially licensed one of a kind kid’s battery operated version of Kasey Kahne’s Sprint Cup Series car. This car will be autographed by Nascar driver Kasey Kahne who was born and raised in Enumclaw then auctioned to the highest bidder. Proceeds will go to Children’s Hospital to fight Cancer.
This unique Kid’s car is the first that will be auctioned off at various events by the Seattle International Auto Show and the Washington State New Car Dealers in support of Children’s Hospital. The car will be featured along with other Kid cars during the Auto Show November 10-13.
If you are one of the millions of people who don’t think the words “Fun” and “Run” should appear so close to each other in any sentence, please continue reading. On August 1st at the Enumclaw Expo Center thousands of people, of varying age and fitness level, will be participating in the “Win ME 5K”. What makes this 5K different than any other race? Color! As your race through the beautiful route be prepared to be doused with color along the way. Start the race wearing white and end in a rainbow of colors.
Giving away prizes is one of many perks that come along with being one of the participants. Each runner will be entered for a chance at thousands of dollars in prizes, the opportunity to give back to multiple charities, and the experience of a lifetime. Gamblin Motors is excited to be the title sponsor, as well as sending one lucky winner home in a Brand New Chevrolet Spark. The Spark is a nimble and compact commuter car that is capable of 39 MPG but is truly one of the world’s only big, small cars.
A new car, thousands in gifts and prizes aside, the Win ME 5K is about promoting a healthy and active lifestyle while supporting local charities like Seattle Children’s Hospital, Strong Against Cancer, and the Rainier Foothills Wellness Foundation.
This isn’t the Boston Marathon, Win ME 5K is an experience designed to strengthen the heart and soul of its participants through running, jogging, even a brisk a walk, but most importantly a heavy dusting of paint and the opportunity to give back to so many deserving charities.
