ALS hits close to home at our house, my husband lost his Father to ALS. I'd given little thought to whether or not I would take the challenge .... until Monday morning. I received an email with an urgent subject line from the administrative assistant for the COO where I work. Those are the ones you open quickly. Turns out our COO had been challenged by a couple of companies to take the challenge and he was looking for some associates to join him. Luckily for us, it was a hot August day in Nebraska and we were taking the challenge at 3:00 in the afternoon. Unluckily for us, the ice water was being dispensed by a firetruck. As it turns out the water wasn't that cold but it went on for what seemed like FOREVER!! Despite being soaked, it was fun and I'm glad I did it.
I challenged my husband and three good friends. It's been a fun week watching everyone pass it on.In addition to the challenge and the fun, it's important to not to forget to donate.
