In 40 years, PATH has grown from a three-person passion project into a global health leader with more than 1,500 staff—and our community of supporters has grown alongside us. They share our unwavering commitment to health equity. Together, we are building a better future for families everywhere.
One of the ways we do this is through an annual fundraising event in Seattle, home of PATH’s headquarters. To celebrate our 40th anniversary on May 12, 2017, we held our largest event ever: Celebrate, Innovate, Make Possible.
Nearly 1,500 people enjoyed interactive exhibitions of PATH’s work and an inspiring conversation by an international group of rising stars committed to creating a more equitable world. They included Teen Vogue’s editor in chief, Elaine Welteroth; 17-year-old actor and activist Yara Shahidi; NOW Ventures and Malala Fund cofounder Shiza Shahid; PATH immunization officer and advocate Brian Atuhaire; and advocate for girls’ rights Onyinye Edeh.
After the program, our closest supporters continued the celebration with dinner. By night’s end, we had raised an incredible $1.4 million for PATH’s Reach Campaign. This generous support launched us into the final stretch toward our $125 million goal.
To all those who celebrated this milestone with us, thank you for bringing your energy, optimism, and commitment to the party and to PATH!
