WHY BE AN AMBASSADOR? This is a great community that supports events that aren’t just for a few but are for many. At the Washington Athletic Club we’re all about leadership, excellence, and high character. This event is a perfect example of all those things.

ON THE 2018 US SPECIAL OLYMPICS GAMES IN SEATTLE: It’s a one-time community event. It’s like a barn raising. People are going to want to be involved because it will make you feel good. I think it will be a huge success. This is what Seattle wants to be. A destination place where great things happen.

WHAT SEATTLE SPOT SHOULD PEOPLE VISIT? Take a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island. You’ll see water, mountains, beaches, and get a real feel for what makes this city unique. Then you’ll get a chance on the return trip to see Seattle from the water.
