ATLANTA, Sept. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Triad Advisors, Inc., the independent broker-dealer focused on hybrid advisors, today announced it raised more than $36,000 for One Summit at its 20th annual National Conference held in September in La Jolla, California. One Summit is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to help childhood cancer patients and their families build courage, self-confidence and resilience through experiential learning and mentorship with a US Navy SEAL. Triad Advisors is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services (NYSE American: LTS; LTS PrA).
Based in Boston, One Summit was founded in 2013 by Adam La Reau, a former US Navy SEAL who began volunteering for cancer organizations after his mother succumbed to breast cancer in 2004 while he was serving in Iraq. The non-profit pairs active and former SEALs with young cancer patients to teach them life skills through indoor rock climbing.
Jeff Rosenthal, President and CEO of Triad Advisors, said, "Everyone at Triad is incredibly honored to support the inspiring work of One Summit. While it is a relatively young organization, One Summit has already had a profound impact on the lives of countless families across the country, and we are pleased to have a small role in helping connect children bravely fighting cancer with Navy SEALs who have heroically and selflessly served our country."
Triad's fundraising event for One Summit continued the firm's strong tradition of supporting charitable organizations where Triad holds its National Conference each year. The Triad donations will benefit One Summit's San Diego Climb for Courage program, an indoor rock climbing event to empower children in their fight against cancer through a curriculum based on the SEAL code.
Adam La Reau, President and Founder of One Summit, said, "We are immensely grateful to Triad's advisors, their strategic partners and home office staff for their very generous donation. Their kindness will bolster our ability to provide exciting, challenging and safe adventures for children battling this devastating disease, as well as provide them with inspiration while they fight the ultimate fight."
