MarketsMuse is pleased to extend a Bravo! and a “bid on” to WallachBeth Capital Managing Director and ETF Execution Specialist Andrew McOrmond as he completes his rigorous 8-week training  in advance of his race to raise money and awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Team, as they compete in the June 2  Spartan Race in Tuxedo, NY.

For those not familiar with the Spartan Race format, think “Special Forces on Steroids”;  these are 5 kilometer events in which competing Spartans race against the clock over a military-style obstacle course replete with mud pits, rope climbing, rock climbing, and barbed wire barriers, before crossing the finish line.

Noted McOrmond, “From a competition standpoint, this is going to be a real fight to the finish, but we’re fighting to help save lives–particularly the hundreds of thousands of people who are diagnosed with blood cancer. ” McOrmond says that his take-away objective from this event is “to raise at least $12,500, and be able to get out of bed the next day!” So far, courtesy of friends, co-workers and even trading desk competitors, McOrmond’s “pre-market order book” has already reached $7500 in commitments.
