Segal McCambridge Shareholder Paul Wojcicki will take part in an event in support of the Muscular Distrophy Association. On October 28, 2009, Mr. Wojcicki will be a part of MDA's 2009 Streeterville Lock-up. In order to get out of "jail," he'll have to raise bail, in the form of contributions to the MDA.
MDA is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. MDA provides clinics locally at University of Illinois at Chicago Hospital, Rush University Medical Center and Northwestern Memorial Hospital. At no cost to them, patients with neuromuscular disease are able to consult with specialists, receive financial assistance towards medical equipment and receive free flu shots annually. In addition, MDA runs a specially designed summer camp for children with neuromuscular diseases and organizes support groups throughout the Chicagoland area.
Mr. Wojcicki is the Chair of the firm's Pro Bono and Public Service Committee.
