  • Wendy Walk



    Overview: In 2008, Wendy Landes, a successful lawyer, wife, and mother of three, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer known as Liposarcoma. She began her battle with grueling surgeries and chemotherapy treatments.

    As Wendy continued the fight, her three children—Ali, Matt, and Jackie—decided they needed to do something as well. Knowing that there was no go-to treatment for Liposarcoma, they decided to create WENDY WALK in 2010 to raise awareness, proactively support their mom, and hopefully find a treatment and cure for Liposarcoma as well as all forms of sarcomas.

    Wendy lost her battle with the disease in March of 2013, but she was able to witness the beginning of an annual tradition – WENDY WALK.

    Wendy Walks take place in three cities each spring: Miami, New York City, and Los Angeles. These walks are less about distance and more about support and awareness. They are family-oriented events to show support for those who are suffering from this disease.

    The money raised from the WENDY WALK goes helps to fund international research for sarcoma. It is a race against time with this very difficult disease, but with determination and the help and support of our community, a cure will be found. Please donate now.

    In addition, Wendy Walk organizes other social and athletic events to raise awareness and funds for research to find effective sarcoma treatment.  

    Responsibilities: Intern will assist with marketing and communications, including marketing strategies and materials, public relations, blog content, social media, and brand partnerships.

Finance

List of 3 items.

  • Gideon Strategic Partners



    Overview: Gideon Strategic Partners, like most successful investment advisory firms, follows a core satellite investment philosophy. These fundamental principles guide the investment decisions we help our clients make:

    -Investments are used to achieve long-term goals, while savings are used for short-term goals
    -Asset allocation with diversification among stock, bond and other markets reduces risk
    -Investors should know and understand how investments fit into their portfolios and why they own particular assets
    -Minimizing investment costs is crucial for long-term success
    -An investor’s primary decisions involve choosing a mix of assets to be held in a portfolio, not the selection of individual investments
    -Risk is multi-dimensional; investors should weigh “shortfall risk”—the possibility that a portfolio may not meet long-term financial goals—against “market risk,”—the reality that returns may fluctuate
    -Market-timing and performance-chasing are not part of a winning strategy
    -Future long-term returns are expected to be very similar to historical returns for various asset classes and subclasses
