The CENTURY 21 System has been a proud supporter of Easter Seals for more than 30 years and has since raised more than $100 million to help provide opportunities for people with disabilities to live with equality, dignity and independence.
â€śWe have been overwhelmed by the generous support from New Millenniumâ€™s friends and colleagues in the community and across the country,â€ť says Todd Hetherington, CEO and co-broker/owner of CENTURY 21 New Millennium. â€śThe Climb for Kids campaign has been a great way to engage families and social organizations in the area and beyond with Easter Seals Greater Washingtonâ€“Baltimore Region and all of the services and resources they provide our community in an effort to empower people with disabilities to live fuller, more independent lives.â€ť
