Trading the Decathlon

Wall Street and sports are coming together for a great cause, the Decathlon 2011, which will take place October 22nd.

According to the event's website, men of all athletic levels employed within the financial services industry will descend on New York City to compete in 10 athletic events testing speed, endurance, strength and agility, all to raise money in support of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s research initiatives.

The Decathlon challenge is unlike any other. It’s incredible to watch, but even more exciting to be part of.

Every performance from every competitor counts because of performance-based fundraising. The concept is simple: the better a competitor performs, the more money he earns via donations.

So rise to the challenge. Set goals. Train hard. Exceed expectations. Raise more money than you thought you could by breaking your performance goals in every event. We’ll crown Wall Street’s Best Athlete and provide first class awards to the Top Executive, Top Fundraiser, and winners in various age groups.

Competition has never been so intense, yet so rewarding.
