The Association of Washington Generals showed their support for Camp Patriot, an organization that assists disabled veterans, by participating in a gala banquet at CenturyLink Field in Seattle on July 9 to help send three vets and their support team to the summit of Mt. Rainier.

The AWG donated $1,000 to help raise funds for the Camp Patriot Annual Summit Challenge on Mt. Rainier. The climb was successful: Gil Magallanes Jr, Eric Cowan and Derrick Ford made it to the top.
The Camp Patriot banquet was coordinated by General Mike Flood, vice president for community affairs for the Seattle Seahawks/Sounders organization.
The Seattle Seahawks and Sounders also sponsor the event, along with other various community organizations in hopes of helping Camp Patriot reach the peak of Mount Rainier.
