Sean Buchanan ’07 was the top fundraiser for a 5K supporting Children’s Memorial Hospital. He was honored in an on-field ceremony at Wrigley Field in late May where he, along with Chicago Cubs Chairman and CEO Tom Ricketts, presented a $40,000 check to Children’s Memorial Foundation President Thomas Sullivan and other representatives from the organization. Buchanan (at right) majored in finance and marketing at Illinois State and is a financial analyst with Uline.

“A team of five coworkers and I received a lot of support from our employer, Uline Shipping Supplies, through a sponsorship and the company’s willingness to match employee contributions. We also asked family and friends, coworkers, and reached out through Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn for additional support,” he explained.

Buchanan plans on fundraising for the Children’s Memorial Hospital again next year and hopes to generate even more support for the cause. Congratulations to Buchanan and thanks for being a difference-maker!
