San Diego, CA, June 08, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- When it comes to helping out his friends, clients or community, Carlos Gutierrez of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties is quick to leverage the power of his numerous connections in Southern California, work ethic and networking skills. The task of renovating a home for Lance Weir is no exception, as Gutierrez recently participated in the demolition phase of the project and is helping to raise awareness about the need for donations.
Weir is a Marine Corps Reservist who was paralyzed in a diving accident. He and Gutierrez established a friendship as a result of their participation in the Million Dollar Challenge (MDC), a 600 mile bike ride down the California coast to benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation.
Along with Gutierrez, Hall of Famer Bill Walton and the rest of Team Lori and Bill Walton, Weir is poised to compete in his third consecutive MDC this fall. Last year Team Lori and Bill Walton was the top fundraiser, with over $160,000 in donations.
“Lance is an inspiration to everyone he comes in contact with,” said Gutierrez, who specializes in La Jolla real estate. “Helping out with the demo of his house and ensuring that the community knows how to donate is my absolute pleasure.”
Funds for the Lance’s House project will be allocated toward making the home more efficient and environmentally friendly, as well as more accessible. “I can’t thank everyone enough for their help and support,” comments Weir, who participates in events like the MDC as a part of Operation Rebound.
Instructions for donating to Lance’s House can be found at www.GreenBeachAmerica.org, a nonprofit that is devoted to restoring an independent and productive life for disabled Veterans.
Gutierrez is also partnering with Bill Walton to host a Temecula cycling fundraiser to get Weir a new bike in time for the MDC. Gutierrez is a Mission Beach resident who is known for his commitment to provide an outstanding level of service to both his clients and the community.
