ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The MCC Villas has challenged MCC administrators and athletic coaches to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! Join us in the Quad on Thursday, August 28, at noon, to check out the action.

How to Get Involved:

For $20, students and staff have the opportunity to pour ice cold water on the individual of their choice! Each individual listed below will accept the challenge up to three times. You can sign up and pay in the MCC Library. All proceeds will be donated to the ALS Association.

Individuals Participating:

  • Bob Allbee, MCC President
  • Gail Spies, Dean of the College
  • Shelly Cram Rahlf, Dean of Students
  • Nancy Luikart, Assistant Dean for Library Services
  • Dave Barb, Baseball Head Coach
  •  Stan Hunt, Baseball Assistant Coach
  •  Scott Beatty, Softball Head Coach

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, affects 30,000 Americans. It is a disease that attacks nerve cells and ultimately leads to paralysis. Prior to the ice bucket challenge, many Americans were not aware of this crippling disease, or of its effects on patients. The typical life expectancy is three to five years. That’s why the Ice Bucket Challenge is so important. For more information, visit www.alsa.org.
