The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Continues

 The Wyandotte Municipal Services’ department heads took their turn at the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by getting doused by ice water dumped from a front loader. They had been challenged by WMS General Manager, Rod Lesko who had previously taken the challenge along with his wife and their 9 children in honor of family members who had ALS. The Ice Bucket Challenge was started nationally as an effort to raise awareness of ALS and to raise funds for the ALS Association.  Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is commonly called Lou Gehrig’s Disease in reference to the baseball great who suffered from it. ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The ALS Association is a non-profit organization fighting this cruel disease on every front.
