When he’s not busy climbing mountains, wake boarding, or playing with his young son, Toby Rawlinson is an active member of the American Lung Association’s “Fight for Air Climbs.” The American Lung Association is America’s leading organization working to save lives from lung disease through education, advocacy, and research. “Fight for Air Climbs” are vertical marathons—participants race up skyscrapers around the country to raise awareness and money for research into lung diseases. Participating in these events is also a wonderful way to support those living with lung diseases. This year’s Seattle climb took place at Two Union Square on October 28th
Toby first got involved with the American Lung Association when he discovered his family’s history of lung-related illnesses. He has used his extensive network of contacts and his talents as a communicator to raise awareness of lung diseases in the community. Drawing on his teaching experience as a lecturer, Toby uses a “word to mouth” tactic to educate people about lung diseases and get them involved in the Fight for Air Climbs. He also organizes and promotes events such as ‘running workshops’ to increase community awareness. Toby says that being a part of this event has made him more aware of the ubiquity of lung diseases, which pushes him to work harder to raise public awareness.
Standing on the beautiful stage of Benaroya Hall in the heart of downtown Seattle, Dean Williard welcomes the audience to the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra (SYSO) performance. Dean currently serves as President of the SYSO Board, working to promote the growth of this organization as it carries out its mission to provide world-class music education to the next generation. As the SYSO Board President, Dean is involved in a variety of projects that are essential to keeping the program running. He helps the music directors set priorities, guides the organization, participates in performance evaluations, and develops fundraising opportunities.
SYSO is the largest youth orchestra program in the United States, serving over 1,500 of the Seattle area’s most advanced young musicians. Founded in 1942, SYSO has four full orchestras, three summer festival programs, and extensive partnerships with local public schools. SYSO ensures a place for every talented student in their program by awarding close to $200,000 in financial aid annually.
As a kid, Dean played low brass instruments in his high school band, a valuable experience that he cherishes. He strongly believes that every child deserves the opportunity to discover his or her passion through programs such as SYSO, and is dedicated to ensuring that SYSO is able to offer programs for as many children as possible. Dean’s passion for music education is reflected in his continuous involvement in SYSO.
Looking for fun ways to celebrate the winter holidays? You can join Akvelon Lead Recruiter Courtney Cacabelos and run a half-marathon! Since 2010, Courtney has celebrated the holidays by volunteering her time to the Northwest Arthritis Foundation’s annual ‘Jingle Bell Run,’ a 5K walk/run that takes place during the holiday season in December. Courtney is an active member of the marketing and planning team for the ‘Jingle Bell Run”. The event promotes awareness of arthritis, which is the nation’s most common cause of disability. The Seattle “Jingle Bell Run” is the largest such event in the country, and raises the most money for arthritis research and programs. Jingle Bell Run participants help improve the lives of the more than 1.3 million people living with arthritis in Washington State
As a dedicated “Jingle Bell Run” team member, Courtney believes that volunteering keeps her inspired. As a part of the marketing and planning team, she helps with the registration process, arranges training routes, and comes up with innovative ways to inform the public about the upcoming event. It’s a lot of work, but Courtney says that it all pays off on the day of the Jingle Bell Run. Race day has become an annual family tradition—Courtney’s dad joins her for the run, as family members cheer them on.Diversity
