Is it hot enough to welcome a chill?
At Sunman-Dearborn Intermediate School, 26 staff members will take the cold water/ice challenge Friday, Aug. 22, said SDIS Music Teacher Jeannie Herman.
“The students will be raising money for ALS by buying tickets for $1 to be able to have a chance of dumping a huge bucket of ice water onto the teacher of their choice!” said Herman. ALS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease.
Herman said they expect this event to be a huge fund raiser and lots of fun for the kids and the staff.
The event will begin at 2 p.m. at the St. Leon school, and is a response to the challenge of the school's “awesome” principal, Christina Vennemeier, said Hermon. Vennemeier is one of the 26 who will be participating in the challenge.
