We are proud of our chief football officer

Alaska’s CFO, Russell Wilson, just finished another amazing season. Breaking records along the way, he skillfully led his team through tough odds all the way to the playoffs, for the fourth consecutive time as Seattle’s starting quarterback. And his dedication to children in the community continues to inspire people all over the nation. We couldn’t be prouder to have him on our team.

Teaming up with Russell

Russell demonstrates his devotion to kids in the community during his weekly visits to Seattle Children’s Hospital. Alaska Airlines is inspired by his efforts, and have joined by donating over $500,000 to Strong Against Cancer, an initiative inspired by discoveries at the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research at Seattle Children's. Now, during the 2016 playoff season, Alaska Airlines will donate 25,000 miles to Strong Against Cancer for every offensive touchdown scored by Seattle.

You can join in the cause with Russell by texting STRONG to 501501 to make a donation. Together we can defeat our toughest opponent, childhood cancer. www.strongagainstcancer.org.
