ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

When the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge began and circulated around the sports world and into the celebrity world, I felt pretty safe from its reach. I laughed at the videos, made fun of their reactions, and while I thought it was a great way to raise awareness & stimulate donations, I never really worried much about the challenge making its way all the way to me. Well, yesterday it found me. Thanks to my friend, Craig Hill, I too got to play along.

Here is a link to my video: ALS Ice Bucket Challenge: Carrie Page

(Audio in text) I am Carrie Page. I was nominated to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by Craig Hill. I will be participating and donating. I now get the honor of paying forward the challenge and choose 4 of you. I’m selecting local leaders and business owners in the hopes that they will involve their staffs and employees to raise even more funds and awareness for a worthy cause. So, I challenge…

Grand Rapids Mayor, George Heartwell

DreamPoint Productions owner and Extend Your Range TV host, Justin Olk

Flees ATA Martial Arts owner, Dwayne Flees

and

Anderson EDM Services owner, Erik Anderson

You all have 24 hours. My time, unfortunately, is up.

  2. Carrie, My friend nominated me as well. I have to say as cold as the freezing ice water was and the small donation required, it was well worth it! And kind of fun when all was said and done. Great Cause and great way to raise awareness and $$$!

  3. Hi Carrie! I’m so happy you did this! You’re awesome, girl! I love your nominees too. I hope they do it. My family and I have also done the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video and donated. ALS is a devastating disease and before this movement few people knew of it. So any awareness we can raise for this cause is wonderful! 😀

    1. You are so right about the awareness this challenge raised. I had heard of ALS, of course, but knew little about it. I did my research when I was challenged and was very happy that I was able to participate & donate. My cousin, the TV host, has done his but not posted it. I believe it will part of his show this Fall. 🙂
