Every time a Seattle Mariners player hits a home run at Safeco Field during the 2015 season, Alaska Airlines will donate air miles to Make-A-Wish® Alaska and Washington to help make “Wishes” come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
The Home Runs for Wishes program is part of Alaska Airlines long-term role as the exclusive domestic airline of the Seattle Mariners.
This season, Alaska Airlines will donate 10,000 Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles for every Mariners home run. Donated air miles provide a significant savings to Make-A-Wish as it fulfills requests. In the five years since the Home Runs for Wishes program began, Alaska Airlines has donated more than six million airline miles for Wish Kids and their families.
As the Mariners “Hometown Airline,” Alaska Airlines is giving fans a chance to go “On the Road with the Mariners” by registering to win an Alaska Airlines trip for two to Anaheim to see the Mariners play the Los Angeles Angels, and meet All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano. The contest will be open from April 24 to May 29. Check mariners.com later this month for information on how to enter.
Alaska Airlines helps bring Mariners Baseball into the homes of fans across the Northwest as the presenting sponsor of the Mariners Radio Network, which reaches Mariners fans across Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska and British Columbia during the 162 game regular season and Spring Training broadcasts.
Alaska Airlines also presents the ROOT SPORTS High Speed Super Slow Mo cameras in all 2015 Seattle Mariners regular season telecasts. The “ALASKA SUPER-MO” will provide viewers with the definitive view of replays of amazing plays and close calls, including umpire reviews of contested calls.
ROOT SPORTS utilizes two High Speed Super Slow Motion cameras at Safeco Field that shoot between 360 and 600 frames per second. The ALASKA SUPER-MO is just one of the elements ROOT SPORTS utilizes to make Seattle Mariners telecasts the best production in regional sports.
The Mariners and Alaska Airlines have been corporate partners since 2001.
