Details about how the event proceeds help children are described on the website as, “Proceeds benefit uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s Hospital which ensures quality care to all children in the Northwest, regardless of their ability to pay.  The need for uncompensated care is estimated to be more than $120 million this year.  Of the 100,000 patients treated at Children’s each year, 65% need financial assistance.” In 2016, the event raised more than $100,000 for the uncompensated care for children at the Seattle Children’s Hospital.

If you enjoy running or walking, this will be an event you want to try to attend. You can enjoy the run or walk and help out children in need. Anyone who does not want participate in running or walking events can also help out by donating. Find out about the possible ways to donate.
