Friday, September 5th, Sutherlin FFA hosted a community-wide ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, including 85 participants. The Ice Bucket Challenge has gone viral across social media to spread awareness and raise donations for ALS. If one was nominated to do the “Challenge”, they had a certain period of time to dump a bucket of ice water on their head and post it on social media along with new nominations. The link to the video of Sutherlin FFA’s Ice Bucket Challenge is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdoXJq1ZPnw&feature=youtu.be.
Sutherlin FFA nominated FFA chapters all across Oregon to complete the challenge in one week. Thanks to a generous loan from Roseburg Coastal Farm and Ranch, buckets were provided for everyone. In total, $1,180 was raised by donors. Sutherlin FFA collected pledges from the community including:
Jack Trowbridge, Great Northern Trailers
Trevor Kenny, ServPro of Douglas County
Bruce Cortez, Barnes Heating & Cooling
Dutch Bros of Sutherlin
Curt and Debbie Price
Lindeen Brown, State Farm Insurance
Scott & Theresa Powell, Powell Plastering
Debbie Foley, Sutherlin East Primary
Betty Tamm ($50)
ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a motor neurons disorder. Over $112 million in donations to ALS have been made already.
