HTA Seattle Wrap-up

High Trek Adventure launched its first urban adventure race in Seattle on July 12th and thrilled 110 people as they zagged and zigged from Capitol Hill to South Lake Union to the waterfront eating pizza, playing arcade games and much more.

Shout Outs:
A special thanks to Josh Powell and Carrie Schaff of the The Vera Project. HTA helped raise $300 for this worthy charity. There always looking for volunteers. For more details or to volunteer, go to The Vera Project.

High Trek Adventure Seattle could not have been pulled off without the super-awesomeness that is Dino and his fantastic staff at 88 Keys. Conveinently located between Pioneer Square and Safeco Field, 88 Keys is a great place for your next party or a great place to go after a Seahawk's or Mariner's game. You won’t be disappointed.

We want to thank Kim Savage of Space City Mixer, Jayne Peralta of South Lake Union Summer Fest, Darnell Sue of Girl About Town and Girl Power Hour, Ryan Cole of Monster Energy.

Thanks to all of our sponsors: 88 Keys, Girl About Town, Girl Power Hour, Global-Fitness, Graceful Edge, Moxie, Rosebud Bar and Restaurant, Seattle Waterfront Arcade, Space City Mixer, South Lake Union Summ Fest, and Timbuk2.
