**STARTING & ENDING location will be Weyerhaeuser**
What is Cruise for the Cure?
Cruise for the Cure was started in 2004 as an event to dust off our VW's and get them on the open road for all to see. The day includes a 100 mile drive from Federal Way, WA to Snoqualmie Summit and back. At the end location we have Music, Food, Kids Activities, Silent Auction and historically over 300 VW's but broke 400 in 2008 and every year since.
Although started as an Aircooled event, we've been excited to see the Watercooled VW Community join us in increasing numbers each year. CFTC is more than just a Day to Cruise and hang out with fellow VW'ers. At the heart of CFTC is a Cause that needs our help. Every year we raise funds for a new local charity. Our first years benefactor was Childrens Hospital of Seattle. Our second year we choose the Evergreen Chapter for A.L.S Reserach. Third year's benefactor was the Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation. For our 4th Annual CFTC we chose Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis in honor of one of our own: Sadie Jordan. Many of us are affected on a personal level with the War in Iraq so year 5 was Fisher House. For 2009 we have chosen Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as our benefactor. Please visit CFF.org for more information. 2011 was BeTheMatch Foundation and now in 2012 we are raising money for Mary Bridge Tree House Project.
Cruise for the Cure has raised over $32,000 for local charities.
The STARTING & ENDING location this year is WEYERHAEUSER just off Hwy 18. There is more than enough room to accomadate 400+ VW's. THANK YOU WEYERHAEUSER!!!!

PT was amazing last weekend and so nice to see such a big turnout. It just goes to show that regardless of conditions that the pnw community is williing to suck it up and support a great cause.
