1st Annual Lunar New Year Walkathon

Photos from our first walkathon at Safeco Field. Nearly 500 participants, perfect weather, and amazing performances! Walkers spanned the generations, from 2.5 months to 93 years old.

A huge thanks to our sponsors: Cathay Bank, Community Health Plan of Washington, Pepsi Bottling Group, PCC Natural Markets, 2010 Census, Gee Oak How Tin Association, and Massage Envy!

This festive family event raised over $15,000 for CISC programs to help immigrants and their families transition to a new life while keeping later generations in touch with their rich cultural heritage.

Join us next year on February 5, 2011 and get the new year off to a great start!

Legislative Day

On February 4th dozens of staff, clients, and volunteers represented CISC at Asian Pacific American Legislative Day in Olympia. CISC was just one of several organizations providing a voice for Asian Pacific Americans in Washington State, as the state government considers solutions to its current budget crisis. Further cuts to the budget would undermine the services that CISC and other organizations provide to the Asian Pacific American community, and this event was an opportunity for CISC to make the Governor and state government aware of our clients' concerns. It was also a chance for our clients to educate themselves about the legislative process and the budget issues facing our state.
