If you’ve spent much time on Facebook recently, you’ve seen all sorts of crazy videos involving people dumping buckets of ice on themselves.
Gasping for air, the thoroughly chilled subject then shouts out a challenge for others to do the same.
All in the name of ALS Research.
Although the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge started out as a donate-big-and-escape-the-ice fundraiser, it seems most give what they can and still make a challenge video to help keep up the momentum.
And so, when Leah was challenged recently, she made her own video and came to work the next day to issue an even bigger challenge:
In case you missed it in the video, take a look at this photo – even Holidog got in on the fun!
Since the 1,200-gallon bucket at Kima Bay would be filled with water (and no ice), we individually added ice (mostly packed into hard hats) just as the water cascaded from above.
Our monetary donation is three-fold; individual staff-member donations will be matched by the park, plus the Koch family is contributing on behalf of the staff.
We thank everyone who has responded enthusiastically to our video and to those who are now committed to make a donation, too.
Many families have been touched by ALS – or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, as it’s more commonly known. If you’d like to help raise money for research or make a donation, please learn more at ALSA.org.
