CENTURY 21 The Professionals of Calgary, raised over $24,000.00 for the Easter Seals 24 Hour Relay which was recently held at Canada Olympic Park on June 9 & 10, 2007. The entire office supported the 24 Hour Relay, either through monetary or time donations, and the team participated for the entire grueling 24 hours. This was the third year CENTURY 21 The Professionals participated in the 24 Hour Relay and they are committed to participating in future years. Eleven of the team members were in the top 20 overall individual fundraisers, and the team won the award for the most kilometers logged for the event by a Corporate Team. The most impressive honour was that CENTURY 21 The Professionals won the overall Top Corporate Fundraising Team Award for the third year in a row!
The money raised will help send many children to Camp Horizon, and helps provide much needed equipment and support to families with disabilities. At the closing ceremonies, this years’ Easter Seals child explained what a difference Easter Seals makes to children who otherwise never get to experience the joy of camps usually designed for children without disabilities. Easter Seals takes away the differences and just lets these disabled children enjoy life like “normal” children.
Owner Carol Bezzeg stated, “Century 21 The Professionals wanted to contribute in a bigger way – we all wanted to give back to the community which has been such a great part of our success. The team concurred that they felt a huge feeling of accomplishment—at having reached beyond themselves and done something really, really worthwhile. The entire team is thrilled to have raised such a large amount of money and is very proud to be associated with Easter Seals and with such a great team of individuals!
