Ultimate Peace


DiscNW would like to pass along a few important messages from Ultimate


Ultimate Peace is a young, non-profit organization that works in the Middle
East with local Palestinian, Jewish Israeli and Arab Israeli youth to
introduce them to our sport and the inherent notion of athletic mutual
respect. There are 12 members of the Seattle Ultimate community going this
summer to work toward the mission of spreading Peace through Spirit Of The


Become an Ulti-mate

Ultimate Peace is a lot of things but, for us it presents an opportunity to
recognize what Ultimate has brought to our lives, and use it as a means to
give back on a grand scale.  So we're reaching out to the local league
Ultimate community in the hopes that your team will support a single camper
this summer, to become what we're calling an Ulti-mate.  Not just a great
pun, but a great idea. As an Ulti-mate team, your team would be supporting a
young person on the other side of the world by sharing with them the special
community and camaraderie fostered by the game we love.  You would be
helping to build positive connections not only between kids growing up
surrounded by conflict, but also between them and yourself.  For more
information, download the flyer:

Party for Peace! 

Come out to Nectar in Freemont on June 9th and dance the night away with
live music, tasty drinks and good people. Proceeds from the door and 10% of
drink sales all go toward Ultimate Peace, a young, non-profit organization
that aims to build bridges of friendship and understanding for youth from
different social and cultural backgrounds around the world with the mission
of spreading Peace through Spirit Of The Game.
