Tori's Troopers has walked at the Seattle Great Strides every year since 1994, putting our money where our feet are to help kids like Tori. This event continued its amazing run again this year by breaking our event record, raising over $312,000! 980 walkers did the 3-mile loop that began and ended at the Seattle Center Amphitheater. Everybody returned to a great lunch provided by Longhorn Barbecue and tunes by Sorry!. Skies were sunny early with some clouds later, and the rain held off until the last of us were heading home. Josh Brown from the Seahawks joined us this year and brought his own walk team.
