By Press Release Tuesday, August 19 2014 @ 07:32 PM EDT
(Secaucus, New Jersey- August 19, 2014) Audi Meadowlands was dripping in ice water yesterday as Audi Meadowlands President Arthur Agresta, General Manager Chris DeMarsico, and Secaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli all took on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. They were joined by 30 dedicated employees who were hosed down with water by the Secaucus Fire Department. In addition to completing the challenge Audi Meadowlands will also be donating $5,000 to the ALS fundraising campaign.
ALS Association, raising over 13 million dollars in the United States, continues to bring awareness to the life altering disease. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is neurodegenerative disease that affects the brain and spinal cord nerve cells. The ALS Associations mission is to provide care services to assist those with ALS, and their families, through community chapters across the nation, and to grow a global research program to further discover treatments, and ultimately a cure for the disease. The ALS Association has brought national and international attention to ALS since the diagnosis of beloved baseball player, Lou Gehrig in 1939. Today, the ALS Association has quickly become an internet phenomenon by challenging the world to pour a bucket of ice water on themselves or to donate money.
Politicians, celebrities, athletes, and your neighbor alike have all accepted the challenge. When doing the challenge, one is to use the hashtags #icebucketchallenge, #alsicebucketchallenge, and #strikeoutals to spread awareness about ALS. How the message spreads is after the ice bucket challenge is completed, the contender has to challenge others to complete the challenge. Soon enough it becomes a domino effect of shivering contenders posting their videos onto social media sites such as Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Audi Meadowlands will not like to nominate you to take the challenge!
