Perhaps these negative stories are elevated because of the ever evolving 24 hours news cycle, but as was highlighted in July 2013 by Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin, this is not a new phenomenon to 2014.

This brings us to the PAT - Positive Actions Thursday (ala Turnover Thursday from Coach Carroll), a weekly highlight of some of the POSITIVE activities you need to be aware of in the world of professional sports. Some may be stories you've already read or seen, but we'll do our best to keep it fresh. What we request is that you use this opportunity to spread the positive news and to appreciate the good work of the individuals through whichever social media method you choose.
At Hawk Strong our mission is to not only enjoy Seahawks game days, but also impact our community through service and fundraising. Hopefully this is one more small step in that direction.
Pee Wee Football Support

Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Event
Seahawks players have made a big impact for local organizations through 'celebrity waiter' events, notably the Earl Thomas Guardian Angel Foundation dinner this week.
One event that drew less attention was the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Washington dinner at the Metropolitan Grill on Tuesday, November 18th (also the one day a week that they players have 'off' from official team events).
Teaching life lessons and serving middle school students
Continuing a theme of service to youth, Seahawks players spent another "off day" teaching and serving the kids of Cascade Middle School in the White Center neighborhood of Seattle. Click here for more.
