ALS, which is more commonly known as ‘Lou Gehrig’s Disease”, has made an impact on all of us at Amigos Foods. In 2011, it took the life of Esperanza Hurtado, the mother of CEO and President, Max Hurtado. This neurodegenerative disease was identified over 75 years ago and there is still no cure.
On May 31, 2014, the ALS Association Greater Chicago Chapter hosted its annual ‘Walk to Defeat ALS’ at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, Illinois. In partnership with Los Comales, Amigos Foods served tacos to more than 3,000 participants, all who have been touched in some way by this terrible disease.
Thank you to Los Comales and our volunteers for their generosity and support as we continue to fight the fight to find a cure for ALS.
