BALTIMORE -- May 08, 2013

Misha Swanson, a CENG Commercial Project Manager who works in the Nuclear
Fuels Department, has been honored by the Exelon Energy for the Community
Volunteer Awards program. Swanson dedicated more than 150 hours during the
past year to Back on My Feet (BoMF) and the Helping Up Mission (HUM) which
have teamed up to help those experiencing homelessness to regain
self-sufficiency in their lives.

“I run with BoMF three times a week at 5:30 AM, but this goes a lot further
for me than showing up for runs. I have the unique privilege to serve directly
in my neighborhood, because HUM is about 500 feet from my apartment in
downtown Baltimore,” said Swanson. “I have spent countless hours with my
teammates over meals, at the movies or farmers market, introducing them to my
other favorite exercise, Bikram yoga, celebrating their sobriety, and
listening to their stories.”

BoMF is anational for-purpose 501(c)3 organizationthat uses running to help
those experiencing homelessness change the way they see themselves so they can
make real change in their lives that results in employment and independent
living.The program’s success is measured by how many Members achieve
independence through employment and housing. BoMF started in Philadelphia in
2007 and now has 10 chapters nationwide. 46 percent of Residential Members
(those experiencing homelessness) move their lives forward with a job, housing
or both.

The 2013 honorees were chosen by an external selection committee comprised of
leaders from the nonprofit community. Additionally, these employees will be
recognized by the American Institute for Public Service Jefferson Awards for
their community service.Exelon’s Energy for the Community Employee Volunteer
Awards were open to all eligible employees who volunteered at least 50
volunteer hours in 2012.
