On Saturday, May 2, at Magnuson Park in Seattle, the Seattle friends of EMERGENCY USA held their first annual 5K run/walk fundraiser to benefit patients at EMERGENCY‘s Salam Center for Cardiac Surgery near Khartoum, Sudan. Participants enjoyed beautiful weather and a raffle after the event with prizes donated by Everyday Athlete in Seattle.
The event raised over $2700, which is more than enough to cover a lifesaving heart valve replacement at the Salam Center. We’d like to extend a big thank you to all of our Seattle volunteers and everyone who participated in the event.
