The President and CEO of Century 21 Real Estate LLC, Rick Davidson embarked on an expedition to climb mountains in Alaska in an effort to raise money for Easter Seals.

Between July 3 and July 11, 2011, Rick Davidson joined a team of climbers in an effort to raise $1 for every vertical foot they climbed for Easter Seals. At the end, the climbing team had tackled 4 peaks in the Alaska Range and ascended more than 31,000 feet! They also raised over $31,000 for Easter Seals.

The plan was for the team do up-and-back climbs of Mount Eldridge and Explorers Peak with a third peak that was to be determined based on weather conditions and the climbing team’s aptitude. The team flew to Anchorage on July 3, then drove two hours to the town of Talkeetna, which is the departure area for climbs throughout the Alaska Range. Their efforts are tracked each day on www.facebook.com/Century21.

Davidson, 51, began climbing 15 years ago, and realized he could us his passion to raise funds for deserving charities like Easter Seals. He has scaled most of the peaks in Oregon and Washington, and has climbed in Mexico and Spain. This will be his first climb in Alaska.
