Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today – Friday, June 24 – about your Seattle Seahawks.
Two Fun Events For A Good Cause
The Seattle Seahawks have some time before the 2022 NFL season kicks off, but the team and legends are staying active. This weekend current Seahawks star wideout DK Metcalf and Seahawks Legends Cliff Avril, Doug Baldwin and Michael Bennett host two charity sports events for Seattle to enjoy.
Saturday, Metcalf hosts the Inaugural Seattle All-Star Classic at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma. The event features fun for the entire family, with vendors and activities for all ages. The softball matchup features a star-studded lineup, including Seahawks Legends Kam Chancellor and Lofa Tatupu, actor Hill Harper, Arizona Cardinals safety Budda Baker and more.
The event is powered by Push For Dreams, a non-profit organization based out of Tacoma dedicated to serving school administrators, district administrators, educators, professionals, and students.
In addition to softball fun, there will also be a celebrity home run derby.
Champions of Change
On Sunday, Avril, Baldwin and Bennett will host Champions of Change at Climate Pledge Arena. Known for their philanthropic works, the group created the organization with a specific mission statement.
Shepherding awareness and support for organizations that serve our communities by sustaining pathways for families to have stable, healthy and loving homes.
The game features a star-studded lineup of its own, with Seahawks legend Marshawn Lynch pairing with Storm star and Seattle legend Sue Bird as coaches against Seattle Supersonics legends Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp.
The two teams are a surplus of star Washington natives and pro sports legends like the NBA's Isaiah Thomas and Jamal Crawford; and Seahawks legends Nate Burleson, Bruce Irvin and Richard Sherman.
