In an effort to raise awareness about ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, people all across the country are participating in the #ALSIceBucketChallenge.
DC United nominated the H&C Team yesterday, and we accepted without hesitation. Watch as the guys get soaked from head to toe on what just so happened to be one of the coolest days of the summer.
Since the campaign launched two weeks ago, the ALS Association has gained more than 150,000 new donors and $5.5 million for Lou Gehrig’s Disease research.
While dumping a bucket of freezing cold water over your head is gutsy, it’s nothing compared to the bravery of those living with ALS. We hope our participation in the Challenge and a donation from Hugh & Crye will help play a small part in the search for a cure.
We completed the #ALSIceBucketChallenge on the roof of the Wonder Bread Factory in DC. Matt, Carl, James, Pranav, and Andrew participated in the water pouring while Jessica volunteered to film it.
