Former Caterpillar Group President Ed Rapp and his wife, Ann, made a $1 million donation tor neuroscience innovation, including assistive technology, improving access to care, and aiding in earlier diagnosis of neurological conditions. Ed Rapp was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) in 2016.

“We have focused our efforts on supporting those in search of a cure, those bringing better assistive technologies to those suffering from the disease, and supporting ALS efforts in our hometowns of Peoria and Raleigh,” said Rapp. “The endowment not only supports innovation in the area of assistive technologies but also supports our hometown of Peoria.”

The Rapps have also spurred more than $1.3 million in matching donations to an endowment for neurological research at OSF since 2017.
