Join us for our Annual Cosmo 5k and 7k Fundraiser

Attention Cosmo 7K Seattle participants! In collaboration with event beneficiary Northwest Hope Healing, Swedish Medical Center, City of Seattle Special Events Office, Seattle DOT, and the Seattle Police, we we will be postponing the Cosmo 7K Seattle race set to take place this Sunday, August 26th, due to the unsafe environmental conditions from the wildfire smoke around the Seattle area.

The race will now take place on Sunday, September 16th.

Join us for Northwest Hope & Healing’s annual summer fundraiser, and help raise money to provide immediate financial assistance to local women who are undergoing treatment for breast or gynecologic cancer at Swedish Cancer Institute.

The Cosmo 7K Run and a 5K Run/Walk feature a gorgeous, flat, and fast course along the shores of Elliott Bay, fully timed and supported, with a post-run celebration festival at the finish line on Alki Beach.

Everyone Welcome

Whether you’re a runner, walker, pushing a stroller, or holding a leash with a friendly dog, everyone is welcome—including men: in previous years, this was promoted as a women’s-only race. This year we’re opening up the race to men and women, after we heard from so many men who wanted to support this cause… complete with multiple shirt options, including larger sizes for guys, and women’s cut tops for gals!

After the races are over, a grand finish line festival will feature live music, goodies/giveaways, and of course… Tito’s Vodka Cosmos for all participants over 21!

Volunteers Needed

Don’t want to run but still want to be involved? We could very much use your help as an Event Day Volunteer. We typically need between 5-10 volunteers at the midway point to staff a water station and provide water to thirsty runners, and we can always use volunteers at the packet pickup area in the morning! Just click here to register as a volunteer and choose what tasks you’d like to do.

Dark Age Tattoo Fundraiser for Northwest Hope and Healing

Always thought about getting a tattoo? Thinking about another? Now’s your chance to have a tattoo done by the amazing artists at Dark Age Tattoo—while supporting Northwest Hope and Healing!

On Saturday October 6th, Dark Age Tattoo in the Capitol Hill neighborhood will be hosting a tattoo fundraiser in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting Northwest Hope and Healing.

Each tattoo artist will create design sheets (called “flash sheets”) for the event, depicting a range of different tattoo designs for you to choose from, each one priced at just $50.00.

On the morning of October 6, line up outside the shop in advance, so you can get your name onto their sign up sheet as soon as the door opens at noon. When your number comes up, the tattoo artist will call you.

With Sincere Thanks to Eric Eye

This event is being coordinated by Eric Eye, who has been a professional tattoo artist since 1990, specializing in detailed realism and portraiture. When his significant other went through a double prophylactic mastectomy with reconstruction, and he saw firsthand what a huge difference restorative cosmetic tattoos made for her, and began to focus on nipple and areola reproduction tattoos for breast cancer survivors.

His goal? To help breast cancer survivors feel whole again through the healing power of ink.
