ALS Ice Bucket Bash
Last Friday, I had the honor of being a part of the St. Louis Regional Ice Bucket Challenge event in downtown St. Louis. I was up on stage with five other local “celebrities” and each person had a goal to raise $10,000, while up on stage. After the bidding was over, each person was “dunked”! All the proceeds were given 100% to ALS research and funding. I was very honored to help raise $10,500. My Dad contributed the final bid to “dunk” me and he enjoyed giving me a slow, freezing soak!
ALS is such a devastating and tough disease for the patient and the entire family. It’s special to be able to be part of something fighting for this disease to give patients and family members hope for continued research and funding.
Each celebrity included a special perk to their bidding, while up on stage for a special “$1,000 bid. I offered a training day with me along with triathlon gear included in the package. Thanks to all my sponsors taking part and supporting this great fight! I look forward to participating in this special training day and will follow up with pictures and details post event.
Here is a video of the dunk….and it was ice cold!
