RALEIGH, N.C. / Nov. 19, 2020 – The team at Weichert, Realtors® – Triangle recently took part in the 65 Roses Challenge Great Strides Walk to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Weichert, Realtors® – Triangle has participated in the event for seven years, and this time around, agents raised nearly $2,000 to donate to the organization.
The 65 Roses Challenge is a broad reaching fundraising effort launched by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to help get one step closer to finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. The organization’s goal is to raise $65 million by the end of 2020 through a combination of local and national fundraising events, one of which is the Great Strides Walk.
Weichert, Realtors® – Triangle had 10 agents participate in this year’s event. They gathered donations before setting out to walk the target goal of 65 miles each over a one-month period. The 10 agents combined to walk the second-most miles among all participating teams.
“It was absolutely amazing to see the initiative our team took to raise money for such a great cause,” said Edna Sexton, the broker/owner of Weichert, Realtors® – Triangle. “I’m glad to have such a committed and caring team of agents who are willing to go to great lengths for these charitable endeavors.”
