Communication Workers of
2 West Potomac
Parkway, Williamsport, MD 21795 Phone:301-582-2105,
Members of CWA Local 2105's
Retired Members Chapter will be participating for the ninth
year the Western Maryland ALS Walk to Defeat ALS.
At this time
there is no known cause or cure for ALS. The disease
makes life's simple tasks of walking, speaking, eating or
breathing impossible. Although the life expectancy of an
ALS patient averages about two to five years from the time
of diagnosis, this disease is variable and many live with
quality for five years and more. But it is a terrible
strain, mentally, physically, and financially, on the
patient and on their family.
This year's Western
Maryland Walk will be on Saturday, June 6 at beautiful
Baker Park in Frederick, Maryland. Our team is called
"CWA Local 2105 - For Pete's Sake." Pete
Catucci served as Vice-president of the Communications
Workers of America for over 20 years. He passed away in
2009. Local 2105 retiree Dick Burger lost his battle with
ALS in 1999. These fellows put up a brave fight against
this devastating disease.
All of the funds raised
for the walk will support local families who are living
with the devastating effects of Lou Gehrig's disease.
If you would like to make
a donation, please make your check payable to "ALS
Association." You may send your check to
any of our walkers - Roger Grimes, Denise Stroup, Bob &
Jean Bollinger, or Vickie Layton. Your donation is tax
much for your support!
Attached is a pic of our team of retired
CWA members taken at last year's walk. We were thrilled
that we raised over $1800 last year!
