Futures for Kids is a Charitable organisation which has been set-up and supported by a very large number of firms and people from across the Futures Industry (Banks, Brokers, Exchanges, Vendors…). 

www.futuresforkids.org.uk  

To date, they have raised over £2Million for a wide range of Children’s Charities, working to help some of the poorest Children in many countries across the world, including Nepal which we all know was recently devastated by a severe earthquake

They are having a big fund-raiser this Friday 15th May , with a number of events being held in Europe / London called FFK Day. 

Pierre, myself and a few other colleagues from the futures industry in Chicago, will be climbing 600 Floors (6,000 Feet) on Friday to raise funds for the charity. We hope you can support us by pledging a small amount of your hard earned cash. 

Our original goal was to climb the 60 Floors of the CBOT Building – 10 times. Unfortunately, despite recognizing the extremely good cause, we were declined access to the building due to numerous Health and Safety and liability concerns! 

So we are doing the next best thing, which is a 600 Floor “virtual” climb on the stair machines at the Grand Union FFC Gym on West Jackson. Its still a considerable effort, We start at 2pm and finish , we hope, a few hours later….. 

Please come to support us and please also pledge a donation on our Just Giving page https://www.justgiving.com/Peter-Hutchison1  

You will note the Just-Giving page is set up under Peter Hutchison – do not worry – he is based in Chicago and will be doing the climb with us. 

Remember nothing is too small , for those based in Chicago office, Pierre and I will also take cash donations :)  

Thank you in advance for your support ; I know we all solicited a lot these days 

Best regards and much thanks 

Nick and Pierre
