ABOUT OUR MAJOR PROJECT PROGRAM
Each year, the members of Fiji commit to giving back to the community by choosing an organization to raise money for. Each year, our Major Project chairmen organize fundraising all year, culminating in an event that also raises awareness. Each member does their part in fundraising, and most members chose to participate in our Major Project event as well.
THIS YEAR'S PROJECT
This year, over $50,000 was raised by the men of Fiji for Seattle Children's Uncompensated Care Fund. This fund helps pay for operations and medical care to all children in the Seattle area, regardless of their parent's ability to pay. In order to raise money and create awareness, the members rode bikes around Green Lake in Seattle for 48 straight hours in May. The event was very successful and members were able to have a lot of great conversations with local residents about a great cause.
Recent projects have included a record setting Wiffle ball game in 2018 and record setting flag football game in 2014, as well as sending a few members to build a house in Senegal in 2017. Below is more information about the Senegal trip.
