Seahawks Grant Wishes For Seven Kids At VMAC

For the second week in a row, the Seahawks created special once-in-a-lifetime moments for a group of children.

On Thursday at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center, the Seahawks hosted seven total kids ranging from ages 4-13 from two separate wish organizations and granted dreams for the children. Two children were from Dream On 3, an organization which aims to bring "sports dreams to life for qualified children by creating personal experiences with their favorite athletes, sporting event, or sports team." The remaining five were from The Austen Everett Foundation, which works to "inspire, empower, and embolden the lives of kids battling cancer."

The kids and their families were welcomed to the VMAC by Seahawks employees before attending the team's walk-thru and watching their favorite athletes up close in-person. Following practice, they had the opportunity to meet and greet their favorite players before enjoying lunch outside on the team's patio.

Not only did all children witness practice Thursday, they'll also get to see their favorites suit up in pads while in attendance at tonight's preseason matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.
