BetterTrades, a national stock market education company based in Atlanta, Georgia, has raised $7,500 for the Wounded Warriors Project.
BetterTrades hosted the "Warrior Class" on June 23, 2014, and donated all registration fees for the event to the Wounded Warriors Project. More than 120 students attended the two-hour online event; some donated money beyond their registration fees and instructors donated their fees.
"I believe this was a wonderful way for us to say 'thank you' to the men and women who protect our country by their service in the military," said BetterTrades CEO Bill Corcoran. "I served in the U.S. Army and I've had friends and relatives have served. Some of them didn't come home because they paid the ultimate price. This is just one way we could honor them for their service."
The "Warrior Class" was taught by Mr. Corcoran and BetterTrades instructor Markay Latimer.
Mr. Corcoran is creator of the "Ultimate Options Trader" DVD series, which features more than 13 hours of instruction. He is host of the "Morning Lab" and "Boot Camp," two popular online classrooms hosted by BetterTrades.
Ms. Latimer is creator of the "Trend Trading My Way" and "Technically Speaking" DVD series that teach BetterTrades students how to be more effective at technical analysis. Ms. Latimer hosts a live "Trader Talk" class twice each week to connect with students.
"The entire BetterTrades community is pleased to make this contribution in honor of our service men and women," Ms. Latimer said. "We appreciate the sacrifices they have made and are excited to be able to make this contribution to the Wounded Warriors Project on their behalf."
