Sweeney serves as an MDA Celebrity Ambassador.  Below is the official release from MDA!

“The Muscular Dystrophy Association has awarded its highest philanthropic achievement honor, the MDA Directors’ Award, to two entertainment industry celebrities.

Alison Sweeney and Ace Young were honored for their outstanding contributions to MDA’s battle against muscular dystrophy and related diseases. The award recognizes philanthropic contributions in the areas of corporate and organizational sponsorship, media and entertainment industry support, and personal fundraising.

MDA Chairman of the Board Dr. R. Rodney Howell presented the awards to both at the July meeting of the MDA Board of Directors in Los Angeles.

Sweeney is the host for NBC’s hit reality series The Biggest Loser and stars in the network’s award-winning daytime drama Days of our Lives. In addition to being an accomplished writer, producer and director, she serves as an MDA Celebrity Ambassador.

Young is also an MDA Celebrity Ambassador and an award-winning vocalist who released his debut CD last year. He was a contestant and finalist on the fifth season of the hit TV talent show American Idol. Young has performed as a guest on MTV’s Total Request Live, hosted a solo concert at the Pepsi Center in Denver and starred in the recent Broadway production of Grease.

“Both of these outstanding performers have something else special in common,” Howell said. “Both are MDA ambassadors who use their special communication skills to help spread the word about MDA’s dual mission of help and hope. And both of them volunteer their valuable time to serve as co-hosts of the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon. Their unstinting philanthropy in combination with their marvelous talents has helped make the Telethon a continuing success and keep MDA high in the public consciousness.

MDA is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The Association also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education. The majority of contributions to MDA come from individual donors.”

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.
