ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

James Perey

Recently, someone posted on the YC Facebook page, challenging the YC Deans to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. James Perey accepted and did it on the Verde Valley Campus on Wednesday, September 3rd on the grassy knoll.

A Verde Valley Campus student, Angel Gutierrez, volunteered to do the honors.

The Ice Bucket Challenge, sometimes called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on someone's head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research.

The challenge dares nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and then nominating others to do the same. A common stipulation is that nominated participants have 24 hours to comply or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation.
