Date:9/15/2009

ng for people with ALS and their families, and to fund global, cutting-edge research that is aggressively searching for new treatments and a cure," said Jane H. Gilbert, president and CEO of The Association.

Established in 2000, the Walk to Defeat ALS has evolved into an annual $18 million enterprise that continues to grow. More than 150,000 people participate in the event, which is held by The Association's national network of chapters in 150 cities.

"Booz Allen Hamilton set the stage for The Association's Walk to Defeat ALS to become one of the most recognizable and successful fundraising events in the nation and for that we will forever be grateful," Gilbert continued.

In addition to creating the successful infrastructure of the Walk to Defeat ALS, Booz Allen Hamilton designed the Walk to Defeat ALS logo, developed and printed Walk to Defeat ALS materials and provided funding for the training of chapters on how to sign up Walk to Defeat ALS participants on the Internet. The company also has made other generous financial contributions.

"The Walk to Defeat ALS quickly evolved into one of the premiere fundraising events in this nation as a result of Booz Allen Hamilton," Gilbert added. "They took a fledgling concept and built it into a brand."

In addition to its work on the Walk to Defeat ALS, Booz Allen Hamilton reviewed The Association's technology infrastructure in 2007 and provided recommendations for its current and future direction. The company also recently completed an extensive pro bono organizational assessment of The Association.

"Booz Allen employees have supported The ALS Association in a variety of ways over the past 10 years ranging from individuals raising funds for local Walks to Defeat ALS across the country to a pro bono organizational assessment for the national ALS Association," said Joe Suarez, community relations director for Booz
