Sixteen years ago – prior to working at Children’s – David started participating in the Group Health Seattle to Portland (STP) Bicycle Classic. He will have participated in the event for 14 of the last 16 years and began fundraising for Children’s uncompensated care program about ten years ago.

He says he wanted a better purpose to participate other than doing it “just for the heck of it.” Children’s was that better purpose.

He has raised over $107,000 in total through the STP event to benefit uncompensated care and almost tripled past fundraising activities during last July’s bicycle classic, bringing in $27,000 for the kids.

David, who picks up and delivers donated goods to Children’s six Bargain Boutique stores around the state, may pedal alone to raise the money, but volunteers at the Children’s Bargain Boutique's help solicit the donations… all in the spirit of helping patients and families.

“A big, big part of it is the fundraising from the volunteers,” he says. “Without them it would be kind of meaningless.”
