ICYMI, thanks to Online Trading Academy Atlanta’s customers and fans, during the final hour of UGA Relay For Life, they reached $20,000! We then matched that amount which landed at $40,000.

Overall, the Relay raised an astonishing $242,000 for the American Cancer Society! 👏🏼

Help us celebrate more birthdays, graduations and game days by funding life saving research. Help us create a world where the words "you have cancer" doesn't have to shape someone's life.
