Mitchell Jones received the good news prior to playing in a basketball game earlier this year. His team, the Woodinville Falcons, were about to face off against a KingCo opponent. But before reaching the locker room, he received a text from the school’s football coach, Wayne Maxwell.
“I went and found Coach Maxwell in the stands,” Jones said. “He told me that I had been accepted to play in the East-West game. It was a cool moment. I was pretty excited.”

More than 3,000 riders participated in the ride, which included scenic routes of varying length, a finish line festival and more.
For the second year, cyclists partnered with Team Korey to raise critical funds and awareness for Camp Korey, a non-profit in Carnation, Washington that offers year-round programs for children and their families living with serious medical conditions, always free of charge. Camp Korey also operates as a water station and rest stop for riders. Team Korey featured 36 cyclists, raising over $12,000 for the camp and completing an estimated 2,000 miles.
