Coldwell nets $20K for nonprofit, through "Climb For Kids" event.
Coldwell Banker Commercial (CBC) Affiliates, one of the largest franchisors of commercial real estate brokerage firms, raised over $20,000 by completing the 2008 edition of the Climb For Kids' Sake, the company's second annual fundraising event for Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, the worldwide leader in one-to-one youth service.
The physically demanding Climb For Kids' Sake is truly a "one of its kind" fundraising event. Over a five day period beginning Sept. 20, a team of CBC mountain climbers, organized by Rick Davidson company president and COO, scaled two mountains in Washington state--Mount Rainier followed by Mount Adams. The Climb was originated in 2007 to raise both funds and awareness for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters organization.
The team members trained several months in advance to prepare for the climbs. The CBC team hauled 40-pound backpacks and endured up to 50 mile-per-hour winds through two separate ascents up both mountains. However, the team, which included both a grandfather and a grandmother, faced nature's challenges head on. The weather ultimately proved too much to make the summit on both mountains, but the team's fortitude is an inspiration to the entire Coldwell Banker Commercial company.
