On January 4th, Drexel Hamilton’s Founder and Chairman, Lawrence Doll presented a check to Jim Regan, the Founder, Chairman and CEO of The Lead the Way Fund. The $25,000.00 was donated as a result of the 2016 Charity Day Call to Action event on Veteran’s Day, in which the commissions during the day’s equity trades were donated to three different organizations that directly support military veterans with the transition into civilian life.
The Lead the Way Fund was founded by the Gold Star father of an Army Ranger and provides invaluable support to veterans. The Fund was established in honor of Sgt. James J. Regan, who was killed in Iraq on February 9, 2007, during his fourth deployment while serving with the Charlie Company, 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment.
“We have a number of Army Rangers here at Drexel Hamilton, so we know first-hand the extreme circumstances facing those Rangers returning home,” said Doll. “The Lead The Way Fund is doing tremendous work supporting those Rangers, and we’re happy to partner with them for a second consecutive year.”
