On June 8, join people, pets and Team Kora at Seward Park for the Furry 5K—a fun run and walk to benefit the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation!

furryJonathan and Susan (your neighbors and the creators of HillmanCity.net) lost a dear friend this month, when our cat Kora was killed on the night of May 16. She had gotten loose from the house, wandered further than usual, and encountered a viciously cruel person or people, who strangled her and left her to die hanging from a neighbor’s fence.

We are still in shock at the loss of our sweet friend, but we take comfort in knowing that others in the neighborhood cared about Kora too. We’re also benefiting from the dedication of staff at the Seattle Animal Shelter, who delivered the sad news to us, are investigating the crime, and have arranged with the Humane Society to offer a $5000 reward for information leading to the person or people responsible for Kora’s death.

Now, we want to turn our grief into positive action–and to celebrate the lives of all of our furry 4-pawed friends. So we’re forming Team Kora to fundraise for the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation in Kora’s memory, and we invite you to walk with us on June 8!

You can contribute to the Shelter’s local work to protect animals through our Team Kora page; registration to participate in the Furry 5K is separate, and can be done onsite or here. Thanks for your support, and we’ll see you at the Furry 5K:

Bridge to Beach (B2B) is on Sunday, April 27th this year.

This is the Rainier Valley Day of Service, where neighbors are out picking up trash, weeding planting strips, painting out graffiti, building benches, art projects, or whatever other kind of project that helps beautify our part of the city.

Hillman City residents have already signed up for at least one Bridge to Beach projects, including this one below:

  • Bringing Beauty to Hillman City’s Concrete Planters — 8am-4pm; Rainier Ave S between Lucile and Mead. An all-day project to empty, paint, and plant those blue concrete planter boxes in Hillman City with beautiful, drought-tolerant plants. Sign up on this handy volunteer page if you’re interested in helping out and meeting some of your neighbors.

We’ll update this page as we hear of other Hillman City B2B projects in the works.

Got a neighborhood beautification project in mind?  Interested in putting a team together to help you? The City of Seattle will provide the supplies! Just register your project  HERE, so they’ll know what you need.
