Nearly 900 people showed up at Lumen Field on Saturday to enjoy a beautiful day, get a little exercise, and most importantly, to celebrate the importance of healthy love and to honor and support those affected by relationship abuse.
The One Love Foundation, partnering with the Seahawks, hosted the Move For Love 5K run/walk at Lumen Field Saturday, an event that included visits from Blitz, Seahawks Dancers and Blue Thunder, family-friendly activities, and a chance to make a difference in the lives of young people.
"We're really proud to be here and to partner with One Love—we've been supporting One Love for almost a decade, and for us, it's a big part of what we do in the community," Seahawks president Chuck Arnold told the crowd prior to the 5K. "We love to empower our youth, and if we can teach our youth about healthy and unhealthy relationships, we're doing the right thing. I have two teenagers, and they have been through the One Love course, and I'm more confident and comfortable knowing that they have done that. Please know that this is an important cause, and one that we're going to keep in the forefront of our conversations."
The One Love Foundation, which was founded following the tragic killing of University of Virginia student Yeardley Love in 2010, empowers young people with the tools and resources they need to see the signs of healthy and unhealthy relationships and bring life-saving prevention education to their communities. It's a cause the Seahawks and Arnold have supported for years.
Seahawks Join One Seattle Day of Service
Move For Love 5K wasn't the only way people were giving back to the community on Saturday. Across Seattle, people participated in the One Seattle Day of Service, including Seahawks Legends and employees who teamed up with the City of Seattle and Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell to take action to improve our community.
In all, nearly 4,000 people volunteered around the city on more than 160 volunteer projects.
The Seahawks, in partnership with One Love Foundation, hosted Move For Love, a 5K walk/run on May 20, 2023 at Lumen Field. Participants ran through the field and concourse to honor those affected by relationship abuse and celebrate the importance of healthy love. Team president Chuck Arnold participated, giving a speech before the race began.
