NORCROSS, Ga., Oct 21, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Triad Advisors, Inc., announced today at their annual September 25th-28th National Conference at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel in Washington DC that they have raised over $46,000 in donations from their advisors and partners for The Independence Fund.
Each year, Triad introduces affiliated advisors, staff and sponsors to a worthy charitable organization and works to raise funds in support of their efforts. During the recent four day event, Triad and its partners raised over $46,000 for The Independence Fund, an organization that works to enhance the quality of life for America's wounded veterans. The money will be used to purchase Track Chairs, all-terrain machines that offer significantly greater mobility than even the most sophisticated wheel chairs. Veterans with limb or spinal injuries inflicted during military service are able to trek through wooded areas, over difficult obstacles, and even through streams.
Triad's CEO, Mark Mettelman, commented, "We take every opportunity to support our military heroes. We set a goal of raising $45,000, enough for three of these life-changing chairs. Our advisors and partners, some of the most generous people I've met, donated enthusiastically. I'm proud to report that we were able to exceed our goal."
