The Storm partnered with Bloodworks Northwest this season to provide an educational session at Bloodworks Northwest Research Institute in Seattle with 30 boys and girls from the local community. The day field trip included visiting their Research Institute and participating in rooftop games, Q&A with speakers in the industry, and stations including a Pop-up Bloodworks, lab tour, and a get-to-know session with a researcher. The day finished with a visit from Storm player Alysha Clark. Alysha engaged with the youth in games of Simon Says, Land/Sea/Air, and Rock/Paper/Scissors . Alysha inspired the boys and girls to persevere and work hard towards their dreams. She answered questions and signed autographs for all participants.
