Legends & Seahawks Make A Wish Day

Seahawks Legends were front and center for Seahawks Make-A-Wish Day (actually Days) held on August 16-18.

On hand for Day 1 activities at CenturyLink Field were: Nesby Glasgow, Ronnie Harris, Paul Johns, Norm Johnson, David Kirtman, Dave Krieg, Paul Moyer and Jim Zorn.

And what was in store for the kids on Day 1 was amazing: nine Wish kids and their family members arrived at the stadium on a Seahawks bus. The kids and their families were escorted to their “locker room” and were greeted by stadium staff holding signs, waving pom poms and cheering for them; and each Wish kid had their own locker full of Seahawks memorabilia, including their own name plate.

And it just kept getting better.

Each Wish kid was introduced coming out of the tunnel onto the field, and at the end of the tunnel were the eight Legends, along with the Sea Gals, Blue Thunder and Blitz, with crowd noise filling the stadium as each kid was introduced. The kids played catch with the Legends, took photos with the Sea Gals, played the drums with Blue Thunder, and helped paint the Seahawks logo in the middle of the field.

Then it was off for ice cream sundaes and a dessert buffet.

On the second day the kids and their families got to watch a walk-through practice at VMAC, and on Day 3 it was back to the stadium to enjoy the Seahawks-Vikings preseason game.

One of the best things to come out of this event was that the Make-A-Wish families bonded and exchanged phone numbers and email addresses.
