Alaska Airlines is running a short-notice sweepstakes on Facebook today for anyone who wants to go to Charlotte and watch the Seahawks play the Carolina Panthers.
Seattle football fans are scrambling to get to Charlotte in time for Sunday’s game. With limited flights, we simply had to step in to fill this void. So we’re sending a special charter flight to Charlotte for fans to cheer on Russell and the team

25,000 Miles for Cancer Research with Each Touchdown
Even if you don’t get to cheer on the Seahawks in person, you can still root from home. Alaska and Russell support Strong Against Cancer, a charity dedicated to preventing childhood cancer through the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research at the Seattle Children’s Research Institute. Alaska Airlines will donate 25,000 miles to Strong Against Cancer for each touchdown by the Seahawks during this playoff game.
