With support from BECU, The Fitness Shop and the Seattle Home Show Aqua Quip has teamed up to create the Swim-Bike-Run for Humanity charity event during the Seattle Homeshow. During the past six years of putting this event on we have raised over $70,000 for Habitat for Humanity. We ask both trained athletes as well as anyone else willing to participate to come out to the Homeshow and literally Swim, Bike and Run for Habitat for Humanity. For every minute a participant swims, bikes or runs – We donate to Habitat for Humanity, Seattle King County. Participants were also encouraged to ask family and friends to come down and cheer their athlete on and sponsor them for additional donations. We will be back at the Home Show next year for even more swimming, biking, and running!
Through Sundance Spas and in collaboration with Wish For Our Heroes, a non-profit organization that helps veterans and their families in times of need. Aqua Quip was able to donate two Sundance Spas in the Puget Sound area in 2018 to veterans who will now benefit from the amazing hydrotherapy offered in a Sundance Spa. This will hopefully ease some of the pain these vets suffer from as a result of their time serving our country.
Aqua Quip, BECU and the Seattle Home Show teamed up again for the Battle of the BBQs! Battle of the BBQs was a grilling competition to raise money and feed hungry Home Show Attendees. This year we matched dollar for dollar donations to Habitat for Humanity* In Addition, each day $500 was donated to the winning teams charity of choice.
Manufacturers offered tremendous discounts at the Seattle Home Show available only during the competition. For every grill sold during the event, Aqua Quip, Becu and the Seattle Home Show donated an additional $100 to Habitat for Humanity.*
The 21st Annual Rock the Harvest Radiothon is one of the ways Aqua Quip tries to give back. In 2017, generous listeners helped reach 1 million dollars in donations over the past 20 years, helping feed hundreds of thousands across Washington. For 12 hours on November 1st, KZOK joins Northwest Harvest in their fight to help eliminate hunger, and we decided to help! Donations during the radiothon of $102.50 will feed a family of 4 for a month!
In 2018 Aqua Quip donated over $3500 through the Rock the Harvest Radiothon to help Northwest Harvest on their mission to end hunger in Washington State.
