Cappy’s Boxing Club knocked out two interviews as part of their Community Health and Well-Being Project this week.
The first interview was with Dr. Rayburn Lewis, MD, Senior VP COO at Swedish Cherry Hill Campus. The Boxers were inspired by his commitment to the community including his 23 years of volunteering as the Franklin High School team physician. Dr. Lewis summed up his philosophy of civic responsibility with the quote “to whom much is given, much is required.” The kids discovered that Swedish Hospital, an integral part of Seattle’s success since 1885, is a great organization to have in your corner.
Later in the week, Club members got to know their neighbor, interviewing Melinda Johnson, owner of Seattle Kajukenbo and Kung Fu Studio. The studio shares Cappy’s commitment to developing Youth in mind and body. Local experts Soyna Wyrobek and Ziko Tzolos led the hour long route to and from the studio with conversation covering nurse midwife training, guitar repair, memorization techniques, heavy metal and boxing. It’s all part of the diversity of the Central District!
