I am privileged to serve as The ALS Association Greater Chicago Chapter's Corporate Recruitment Chair. Exelon was the chapter's first Walk to Defeat ALS partner- a relationship that has continued and we hope will grow significantly in the future. It is my desire to bring partners alongside to move the chapter into their second decade of greatness in serving the ALS community.
Why We Need Your Help
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral
sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that
slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe.
The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the
time of diagnosis.
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and
every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this
disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or
This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known
cause of the disease yet it still costs loved ones an average of
$200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a
difference and donate or join Team Exelon today.
