Seattle Startup Week is only two weeks away, and preparations are in full swing here at thinkspace! October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And you know we are always looking for ways to build and strengthen our ties within the community. If you’re a part of the startup community and we haven’t met you yet, we’re hoping to change that soon. And if we have already met you, we’d love to see you, too!
We’d like to invite you to spend your morning with us on Wednesday, October 28th for a 5K Run to Beat Breast Cancer. Run, walk, skip, jump and be merry with us. The run begins at 8:30 am and will take us along the Burke-Gilman Trail and through Gasworks Park. Stick around after the run concludes to eat some breakfast noms and jam out to some early morning disco tunes at our Fremont location.
The event is free, but we’d appreciate any donations you can put forth. All proceeds will go to raise funds for Dr. V.K. Gadi’s research at Fred Hutchinson Medical Research Center. 5K t-shirts will also be available for $20, with all proceeds supporting Dr. Gadi and his team.
RSVP for the Fremont Run to Beat Breast Cancer here.
Can’t make it on the 28th? Running just isn’t your thing? Not to worry! We’ll be supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month throughout Seattle Startup Week, with opportunities to make a donation to the Fred Hutch team at each of our events:
