Our September 7th Amazing Ra…
Our September 7th Amazing Race event was a complete success. 12 teams raced through the Seattle and outlying suburban areas, wearing race gear bearing the Ryther and Amazing Race logos. Many bystanders thought we (and they) were on the actual television show, which was a great way to promote Ryther as well as have a bit of fun.

The fundraising associated directly with the event was also a great success, bringing in a much needed $54,375 to the Ryther Capital Campaign. It also helped to influence other fundraising efforts, bringing in an additional $10,000 from the Real Networks foundation via a grant. This money will contribute to major renovations of Ryther's campus facility interiors, which have not received proper upgrades for 15 years. Our goal is to improve each of the cottages where the children reside so that they are more therapeutic, comfortable, brighter and up to date as well as conducive to each child's journey to heal and be able to successfully live in a family post-treatment. Ryther is committed to caring for children in the best possible way and believe that the physical environment for those who have been traumatized plays a very important role in how well they do in treatment. This is especially important for children who come to Ryther because on average they have been in 9 different placements prior to entering these cottages which they naturally call home.

Many thanks to our generous donors, your contributions will go a long way to helping our Ryther children along their way to happy, healthy futures.

Thank you for your contribution to a great cause!

All donations will go directly to help the kids and teens at Ryther. These donations are tax-deductible EIN 91‐6050939. You can go directly to our team site to track our fundraising progress or refer us to another generous donor: http://www.crowdrise.com/reisenelfgravrockers Our team alone has already raised $25,175!

Ryther is a recognized leader in behavioral health services for children and their families facing complex challenges. The organization is dedicated to providing comprehensive services and innovative treatments. They guide, coach and teach so that every child and family we work with may experience new ways of thinking, develop positive relationships and realize a better life. http://www.ryther.org/about/

Ryther's Legacy:

It was 1885 when Mother "Ollie" Ryther promised to care for her dying neighbor's four children, and, having found her calling, she then vowed to never turn an orphan away. Fifty years and 3,000 children later Mother Ryther said, "The essential thing is to love the children and understand them.”

Fundraising efforts this year consist of an Amazing Race themed competition where fundraising and endurance come together for a great cause. This year's race, which kicks off at 12:00 will be held on Saturday, September 7 starting at the Redmond Athletic Club. The race will consist of 12 teams of four participants who will compete in various physical and mental challenges. Clues provided in each leg direct teams to perform a series of tasks and ultimately lead the teams to their next destination. The first team to arrive at the final destination with all members wins the race.

Specifics about how your generous donations will be used by the Ryther Child Care Facility will be coming soon. But first it's race time, and your team is going to try and win (we get a small head start thanks to your donations to our team!).

Thanks again for your generous support, updates will be coming out after the event this weekend.
