One man is on a mission, or more accurately stated, a Quest—a Quest to raise funds for Easter Seals Arizona, a provider of services to children and adults with disabilities.

With the assistance of his team of volunteers at CENTURY 21 Metro Alliance, Kevin Allen will begin his journey in Flagstaff, Arizona on September 28th, 2005 and will walk over 200 miles, arriving in Phoenix on October 8th.

When asked why he was doing a 200 mile walk, Kevin’s responded, “I am walking to raise awareness for Easter Seals and to make a difference. I am walking for those who can’t.”

Easter Seals has been helping individuals with disabilities and special needs, and their families, for more than 80 years. From child development centers to physical rehabilitation and job training, Easter Seals offers a variety of services to help people with disabilities address challenges and personal goals. Easter Seals Arizona is a unique organization because, unlike many other charities, every penny that is raised in Arizona remains in Arizona.

Kevin’s departure point will be CENTURY 21 Metro Alliance’s Country Club location at 1900 North Country Club Drive in Flagstaff. He plans to conclude his Quest in Phoenix 11 days later at CENTURY 21 Metro Alliance’s Corporate office, located at 19820 North 7th Street, directly off the Loop 101. Kevin will stop at CENTURY 21 Metro Alliance offices along the route and hopes to raise funds for Easter Seals through events at various locations.

Kevin’s Quest for Easter Seals focuses on three different forms of donations, including company sponsorships, personal donations, and fundraising events. Organizations that wish to contribute to Kevin’s Quest can choose from four different sponsorship packages, which are outlined at http://www.kevinsquest.org, and include various promotional benefits, with all proceeds going directly to Easter Seals Arizona. Individuals can also donate, either by mile or for his completion of the entire journey, and will receive an event t-shirt.

And finally, CENTURY 21 Metro Alliance is organizing a finale party at its corporate location, where Kevin and any accompanying walkers will be greeted and their success will be celebrated. This event is currently schedule for 11AM on Saturday, October 8th, 2005 and will include carnival games and treats, a barbeque lunch, a live band, and the Phoenix Fire Department, who will be presenting information booths and a fire truck!
