Gold’s Gym Issaquah is holding a blood drive Sept. 25 to honor Elizabeth Buder, better known as “Scout,” the 4-year-old Issaquah girl sickened by E. coli poisoning after visiting the Issaquah Farmers Market in August.
The blood drive is 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the gym, 1025 N.W. Gilman Blvd. Anyone can participate, you do not have to be a member of the gym, said Gold’s Christian Bollinger.
Why did Gold’s decide to get involved?
“It just seemed like a good idea, something respectful to do for the little girl,” he said.

While a county health official would not give an exact time frame, county health investigators are following six confirmed cases of human E. coli bacteria infection, including two cases linked to the Issaquah Farmers Market and two linked to the Sammamish Farmers Market.
The link between all the cases is alleged to be a Mexican food truck, Los Chilangos, which visited both the Issaquah and Sammamish farmers markets, said Hilary Karasz, a spokeswoman for Public Health — Seattle and King County.
“We have an active E. coli outbreak… we are investigating,” Karasz said.
Karasz would not discuss the age or gender of the people sickened.

Michael Kramer grew up in the kitchen. So, it’s no surprise to his closest family members and friends that his food truck Za’aTar is receiving rave reviews.
As a youngster, if he weren’t entwined in his grandmother’s legs while she was cooking comfort food worthy of any diner, he’d be underfoot while his dad whipped up a pretty mean homestyle Italian meal
What to know
Now 22, the Liberty High School graduate said that in looking back, it was perhaps his mother who provided the most memorable life lessons to prepare him for what not to do while running a kitchen.
“One time when we went camping, she was trying to fry up some potatoes for breakfast when she asked, ‘Why is the oil bubbling up?’” Kramer recalled.
