Digging An ALS Challenge

You’ve probably heard of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge: the video craze in which someone pours (or has poured) ice water over his or her head, and challenges others do the same within 24 hours. If not, they make a donation to fight ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).

Plenty of folks are doing it creatively, wetly and freezingly. The videos are clever and funny.

But you’d have to go a long way to top this, from Westporter Jake Sussman:

Jake dedicated his video — created with the help of Peter Greenberg, of Able Construction — to a contractor who died of ALS. Jake also donated $100 to the ALS Foundation.

He hopes his video goes viral. Feel free to pass it along — and take the Ice Bucket Challenge yourself, too!

  1. Great job! This one is the best yet! Making a difference in ALS is what its all about.

  2. Those of you of my vintage (Staples ’66) will remember Matt MacVane. His son Beau, who followed in Matt’s footsteps as an athlete and warrior, died of ALS five years ago — only 33 years old. (http://beau.macvane.com/) I know a donation in Beau’s name would be greatly appreciated by Matt, Myles and the rest of the MacVane family.

  3. What a wonderful job and a wonderful cause. I would like to donate $ 100.00 also.

    Wow, now that is cool :-) My dad Gerry Turner passed away from ALS back in 1982…I had hoped they would know more about it by now and have found a cure…Maybe this will help in funding the research so nobody else ever has to go through such an awful way to go…

  5. You are outstanding, Jake. And shout out to wonderful Peter! Well done!
