Yesterday, I saw a video of a student led re-fresh of the ice bucket challenge at Hamden Hall Country Day School in my honor. I was humbled and overwhelmed. The support and care that I have received from my school families through this journey have been remarkable. Never more so than when former students and players have reached out. It is a powerful reminder of why I do what I do.
Before I was diagnosed, what I knew about ALS was primarily driven through my participation in the original 2014 ice bucket challenge. A few months ago I dug up that footage, and my children still get a kick out of it. The video I saw yesterday reminded me of the power of that initiative.
If you participated in the challenge two years ago, thank you. I would also recommend digging up that footage. If you recognize cinematic genius in your video, I encourage you to repost it- a bit of a throwback with a cause!
