Nearly 600 passionate 12th men and women climbed up 1,579-foot Badger Mountain, between South Richland and I-82, on Saturday to stage a Seahawks rally on top.

"I don't think any place has organized this many people at one time" for a Seahawks rally, event organizer James Gojenola told KNDU-TV.

The official name of the event: 12th Man Badger Mountain Hike.
