Young ProfessionALS Group

YPG4ALS_Logo

Fun with a cause! Our Young ProfessionALS Group (YPG) is a great way to meet other Chicagoland young professionals with a common interest in finding a cure for ALS. Many of our members have a personal connection to ALS, but we welcome anyone who is interested in making a difference.

The Young ProfessionALS Group meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. We meet to socialize, support and discuss new ways to raise awareness and assist those affected by ALS. YPG hosts several exciting fundraisers each year, including an NCAA bracket challenge, cocktail hour and Holla for ALS Casino Night. Members also support the Foundation by joining Team Race for ALS, forming teams for the ALS Walk For Life or volunteering throughout the year.

Contact chair of YPG, Susan Hackney or the Foundation’s Special Events Associate, Katherine Evans or call 847 679 3311 for more information or to be added to the email list.
