Presented by The Seattle Thunderbirds
The Hockey Challenge began in 1998, when hockey-playing Microsoft employees, with the help of the Seattle Thunderbirds, took an in-house rivalry public and decided to raise money for a good cause at the same time. In 2001, Microsoft made a $2 million pledge to support the construction of expanded Seattle Ronald McDonald House facilities, and vowed to hold the Hockey Challenge event each year to raise money until the pledge was met. The $2 million pledge was fulfilled in 2003, and the RMHC Hockey Challenge continues! Hockey Challenge is an RMHC and Seattle Thunderbirds managed event that has tremendous momentum and support from the local and national community and continues to raise much needed funds for RMHC of Western Washington & Alaska. Since inception, the event has raised more than $4.5 million.
The 2015 Hockey Challenge will take place on Saturday, February 27, 2016. If you would like to get involved or learn more about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Vanessa Kirk Briley at (206)838-0613.
