THE BRITISH INVASION – SEPTEMBER 2017

Century Link stadium

Another Muscles for Charity first !!                                                                                                Seattle Sounders played LA Galaxy at Century Link Field on Sunday 10th September.          At half time the electronic stadium message boards featured ‘Groups and Associations at the game’, including ‘Muscles for Charity’.  The UK and US Muscles volunteers sitting in the 73,000 seater stadium were surprised and impressed.

RESIDENCE X11 – SUMMER 2017 – KIRKLAND, WA

Smiles all round on a sunny Saturday in June when Muscles volunteers tackled a pressure washing project for a non profit in Kirkland, WA.

The invitation involved cleaning the area outside main reception and a communal area at the rear of the buildings which included a stepped concrete terrace as shown below –

Three pressure washers in use at the front and area of the buildings over a six hour period revitalized the areas and drew praise from management and residents.
