Heroes for Life

TradeTec feels it is important to help and give back this holiday season, especially to these children fighting for their lives every day. TradeTec has been a sponsor and supporter of Cal's Angels for years. Ken Buckman, CEO of TradeTec, is a Board Member who has helped raise money for the foundation each year with their 5K run, golf outings and other events.

This is the 7th year for the Annual Cal's Angels Toy Drive, which was started in 2007 by the parents of Cal Sutter, a 12 year old boy from Elgin who lost his battle with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia in 2006, a little more than one year after his diagnosis. Since then, Cal's Angels has become a Lurie Children's Hospital partner, pledging $200,000 to the hospital's "Heroes for Life" program. The organization is committed to stocking 2 playrooms in the hospital and hosting 14 hospital parties every year at which patients and their siblings receive a toy drive gift to take home.
