Taking on the #icebucketchallenge
Today I was nominated by my friend and teammate Marty Rosethal to take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, although he cheated a little. Let me explain why I think he cheated: once you take on the challenge and pour the ice bucket over your head you are allowed to nominate 3 people, he nominated 11 people. I guess if he donated not only to the ALS association, but also to 2 other organizations plus he will pay it forward by volunteering for the Athletes in Tandem foundation, he gets to nominate more than 3...I guess 🙂
On top of dumping ice water over my head, I will also donate to the ALS association, which before today I had no idea it existed. I think this challenge helps people like me understand the decease a little better and if this can help bring a little awareness to other people, I'm all for it.
Since I went through with the challenge I get to nominate 3 people:
1. Russell Herbert
2. Ryan Eatherly
3. Nils Lofgren
You now have 24 hours to take the challenge or pay $100 to the foundation. Link to donate page:

Once you have completed the challenge you get to nominate 3 more people!
