For more than 25 years, Davis Law Group has advocated for accident victims across the state of Washington. As part of our continued effort to fulfill this mission, we are proud to launch our new 'Focus On Recovery' video series in which we shine a deserving spotlight on those individuals, groups, and organizations who truly make a difference for innocent victims in our state.
In our first episode, we are excited to feature the literally life-saving work of Cheri Marusa and Life Support I-90, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit which focuses on raising funds and spreading awareness about the challenges facing the region surrounding the Interstate 90 corridor, including Kittitas County Fire & Rescue (District 7), Snoqualmie Pass Fire & Rescue, and more.
Through their efforts, Cheri and the Life Support organization provide crucial funding and infrastructure to the I-90 corridor, helping first-responders save countless lives. In the video below, we highlight how Cheri and her team of volunteers helped bring a brand-new facility (Fire Station 73 in Cle Elum, just off of Golf Course Road) with state of the art equipment to assist first-responders with life-saving emergency services:
About Life Support I-90
Over the last 20 years, Cheri's work has not only put more tools and safety equipment in the hands of firefighters but also helped raise funds that were used to build new fire stations and allowed the region to hire full-time firefighters to support what have historically operated as mostly volunteer-run stations. Despite Life Support's many successes, the organization recently suffered a significant setback as Governor Jay Inslee vetoed much-needed funding that would have provided vital support to the region's first responders. Now more than ever, Life Support needs your help.
Life Support hosts a fundraising dinner and auction every year where community members can bid on donated items to help fund Life Support initiatives. The 2020 Life Support Auction is currently scheduled to be held at Swiftwater Cellars Winery on July 11th but may be postponed due to ongoing social distancing guidelines from state authorities relating to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Update: The 2020 Life Support was unfortunately canceled due to COVID-related challenges.
Update: Life Suppport's 2021 Dinner Auction was a huge success.
