On November 10, Century 21 New Millennium presented $20,425 to Easter Seals Greater Washington-Baltimore Region. However, this was no ordinary contribution; the funds were raised in the most creative and challenging of ways.
This summer, Rick Davidson, President and CEO of Century 21 Real Estate, LLC and a board member of Easter Seals Inc., organized a five-member team that hiked through the Alaska Mountain Range to raise money for Easter Seals. The “Climb for Kids” began in Anchorage, headed north to Talkeetna and ascended to the summits of Mt. Eldridge and Explorers Peak. The nine-day trek was physically challenging; taking the crew up 31,000 feet in elevation and covering four summits. A total of over $41,000 was raised for Easter Seals.
Scott Becker, Director of Business Development for Century 21 New Millennium, was one of those selected for the Climb, and once he got involved he jumped in with both feet. In fact, he was presented the inaugural “Ascender Award” from Davidson for raising the most donations of all participants on the Climb. “Being a part of the Climb has exposed me to all of the tremendous services that Easter Seals provides daily,” said Becker.
“The Alaskan experience truly changed my perspective,” added Becker. “Rick (Davidson) put together an amazing climbing team and I am grateful. Being able to raise money for Easter Seals was a gift to me personally. Our company is awed by the work they do and humbled to have been able to make a contribution.”
Over the years, Century 21 Real Estate, LLC has become a terrific friend of Easter Seals, serving as a national corporate sponsor and raising over $100 million in since 1979. As Davidson notes, “improving our communities is an important part of real estate, and Century 21’s support of Easter Seals helps us build strong communities by ensuring that people with disabilities and special needs have many opportunities to live, learn, work, and play.”
“Easter Seals Greater Washington-Baltimore Washington Region is honored to accept the generous donation from Rick, Scott and the Century 21 team,” said President & CEO Lisa Reeves.
