Local business participates in fundraiser for kids

POULSBO —  The Acupuncture and Wellness Center ( will participate in the annual Cupid’s Undie Run in Seattle on Saturday, to raise money for the National Children’s Tumor Foundation.

The Acupuncture and Wellness Center created Team Super Qi to run with hundreds of other people on a 1.5-mile course through Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. The center’s 14-member team — consisting of staff members, friends and patients — was ranked fourth in team fundraising at the beginning of the month. Clinic manager Kim Pedersen was ranked third in individual fundraising.

“We wanted to encourage our patients to lead a healthier lifestyle and this offered a chance to lead by powerful example,” Pedersen said. “It’s a wonderful organization and a fun way to help our community while becoming stronger as a team. Plus, we get to wear tutus and super-hero capes in public.”
