The Redhawks partnered with King County Parks to perform maintenance and cleanup at the Sky Country Trailhead at Cougar Mountain. Some of the tasks performed by the members of the team included clearing loose branches and brush, trimming trees, and making the paths safer for everyone who uses them.

The mission of the Seattle University athletics department is to champion the holistic development of student-athletes inspiring a vital and engaged campus community through the development and maintenance of a premier, nationally prominent NCAA Division I athletics program, in the spirit of the Jesuit tradition. One of the ways that the mission is put into action is by encouraging student-athletes to engage the greater community through meaningful service activity.
