Market Technologies & TraderPlanet.com Fight Against Breast Cancer
Company News and Press Releases
TraderPlanet.com and Market Technologies, LLC Unite in the Fight Against Breast Cancer
Wesley Chapel, FL, October 27, 2008 – If you know eight women, odds are pretty good that one of them will develop invasive breast cancer during her lifetime, according to National Cancer Institute estimates.
That alarming statistic is why TraderPlanet.com was a Bronze Sponsor for The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on October 25th in Tampa, Florida, donating approximately 2,500 squeeze water bottles to walk participants. TraderPlanet.com also teamed up with Market Technologies, LLC to help raise additional donations.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a non- competitive 5k walk to raise money and awareness for breast cancer, which affects more women in the United States than any other cancer, excluding skin cancer. Both large and small businesses, schools, churches, family, friends, and cancer survivors form teams, worked together to raise money, promote awareness and attend the event to support this cause. Last year more than $345,000 was raised in the Tampa community alone.
As part of its mission to provide quality content, valuable resources, and a social network for traders free of charge, TraderPlanet.com’s dynamic communication platform includes a goal of inspiring community members to do good things with their investments profits. As a Bronze Sponsor of the event, TraderPlanet.com employees not only donated their personal time and efforts, but also held company-wide fund-raising events in conjunction with Market Technologies, LLC, developer of the VantagePoint Intermarket Analysis Trading software. VantagePoint uses artificial intelligence applied to intermarket relationships to analyze and forecast price movements in stocks, futures, options, exchange-traded funds and foreign exchange markets. In addition to the financial contribution as a Bronze Sponsor, the two companies were able to raise more than $3,000 in donations.
The money raised through Making Strides Against Breast Cancer helps fight breast cancer through various means. It aids in the funding of cutting-edge research, education, support, advocating of public policies, and provides the nation’s only 24-hour cancer hotline. Death rates from breast cancer have steadily decreased in women since 1990 due to early detection and treatment, with 2.5 million survivors living in the United States.
“It is imperative that we continue to do our part in the fight against breast cancer,” said Lane Mendelsohn, Publisher of TraderPlanet.com. “Our employees together with members from TraderPlanet.com came together as a team to raise a significant amount of money. The success of so many charitable programs depends on individuals, and it is amazing to see what these individuals can accomplish when they come together.”
