UNIVERSAL STUDIOS FLORIDA- Cookie and Kevin Dean, co-owners of Electricity Maine, have been selected to participate in Season 7, FIREBALL RUN All Stars & Movie Cars, an online reality-filmed TV series.
Since 2007, FIREBALL RUN has been The Most Epic Adventurally in America®, a gripping 8 day, 2000 mile, life-size trivia game, where America serves as the game board; part live event, part streamed, and part 25 episode series. Unlike packaged reality television FIREBALL RUN is authentic and very real; 40 celebrity and aspirational driving teams compete for bragging rights, a greater cause, and a plastic road sign. All while raising awareness for missing children. To move about the country and score, teams solve clues and accomplish tasks based on city; points-of-interest, history, & culture.
Although a trivia game, there is nothing trivial about FIREBALL RUN’s message or results. Often referred to as “the most fun you will ever have, doing the most important thing you’ve ever done”, every team is assigned a missing child from their home of origin and tasked with distributing posters; the effort annually distributes 65,000 posters across America and has aided in 38 recoveries since 2007.
Electricity Maine’s Power to Help fund raises funds and awareness for area non-profits and community organizations. Team Electric Slide will take the Power to Help message on the road. Driving a 2013 Porsche Cayenne GTS, team Electric Slide will raise awareness for a missing child out of Massachusetts.
Christopher Ortiz, now 15, who has been missing since April 4, 2013. Drivers Kevin and Cookie Dean hope the media attention that will evoke someone to come forward with new information for police. “The day Christopher went missing he was doing what so many other young people do. He spend the day at school, then was likely going to the local rec center. He was just doing what all 14 year old boys should be doing”, said Cookie & Kevin.
