First Ever Official Seattle Seahawks 'Hawk Bike' Build for Charity
                                        

 

Unique to the Northwest and available for the first time ever, the Official Seattle Seahawks "Hawk Bike" is a custom one-off theme motorcycle built for this year's annual charity raffle Grand Prize and signed by Seahawk Players!

This historic piece of Seahawks memorabilia was won on September 7th, 2013 at the 2nd Annual Union Ride & Charity Rally™ by local resident, dedicated event supporter and 12th Man fan, Gary Schmidt of Washington. In an amazing and heart-warming display of generosity not often heard of, Gary donated the Hawk Bike BACK to our non-profit to forward the cause of our charity efforts. When event organizer and Hawk Bike Build for Charity Founder Patrick 'PT' Town asked Gary why he didn't just keep it and sell it himself, he stated, "I didn't buy the raffle tickets to win the bike, I bought them to support the charities that benefit from the Annual Union Ride & Charity Rally™ fundraising event. I simply wanted to do what was best for them and if the non-profit can sell or lease the bike and make more money for the charities, then that is what I want to do".

Rare is this type of generosity ever witnessed and experienced yet it is what the Union Ride & Charity Rally™ is all about - helping to bring out the very best in people helping people. Gary could have sold the bike and pocketed the money but true to his word and generous heart, he gave back BIG. An empowering lesson in good will for us all.

The Hawk Bike represents the commitment of the Annual Union Ride & Charity Rally™ and its sponsors to the ongoing efforts of our charity beneficiaries and is dedicated to the support and solidarity of the working families of Washington and the 12th Man fan base in helping our community.

The Official Seattle Seahawks Hawk Bike is currently on public display at Destination Harley-Davidson, 2302 Pacific Hwy E, Fife, WA. if your company or organization is interested in leasing the Hawk Bike for promotional purposes, we would welcome that conversation.

A special HAWK HERO AWARD was also awarded to Carissa B. as the person who purchased the most raffle tickets. To some fans, this award and prize is more valuable than the bike! The year's Hawk Hero Award package was over-the-top and included:

 1. An Original hand drawn sketch of Russell Wilson by famed sports artist George Tanay and personally signed by both the artist AND Russell Wilson! (A Seahawks Certificate of Authenticity accompanies the artwork)

 2. Exclusive tickets for four (4), in a luxury suite at CenturyLink Field, to the September 22nd, 2013 game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Jacksonville Jaguars!

Added to this year’s event charity beneficiaries are the Awareness, Education and Prevention of Youth Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) though collaboration with The Brain Injury Association of Washington and People First of Washington. As we have seen in the NFL, the effects of TBI on adults can be devastating and better education and traing for our coaches, kids and parents in all youth sports are needed.

With the addition of the Seattle Seahawks Official "Hawk Bike" Build for Charity, we hope to enage and empower all of our 12th Man fans out there, the Working Families of Washington and our Loyal Community to take action by joining our efforts. Please don't just be part of the conversation, be part of the solution!

 


This is all for them:

  • ANEW (Apprenticeship & Non-Traditional Employment for Women, Men, Minorities & Veterans)
  • Northwest Harvest – Ending Child Hunger in Washington (statewide food bank)
  • The Awareness, Education and Prevention of Youth Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in Youth Sports.
