Seahawks and Walmart+ Partner to ‘Plus Up’ Game Day for Community Heroes - Seite 2
“Dr. Fagley and his team embody what it means to be a hero,” said Jeff Richards, Seahawks Vice President of Marketing & Community Engagement. “The 12 Flag is a symbol representing the community of 12s across our region and around the world. The raising of the 12 Flag is an incredibly special tradition that we reserve for people who have made a significant contribution in representing our Seahawks and Pacific Northwest community. We are thrilled to come together with Walmart to recognize Virginia Mason and Dr. Fagley’s tireless commitment and dedication to service when our region has needed it most.”
Dr. Fagley is responsible for ensuring his team is adequately prepared, staffed, and protected to care for all critically ill patients at Virginia Mason, as well as to keep the critical care team informed as new data on COVID-19 becomes available. He also helps coordinate communications across specialties at the hospital to optimize the care they are providing.
Throughout this very unique season, the Seahawks will be honoring community heroes with ceremonial 12 Flag raisings held across the state and beyond. The 12 Flag is raised before each Seahawks home game in an exhilarating moment just prior to kickoff, and it will continue to fly over every home game this season. More than 140 notable Seattle icons have raised the 12 Flag since the tradition first began in 2003.
