Where I Do The Ice Bucket Challenge & Who Did I Challenge?

I was challenged to do the Ice Bucket Challenge by Roman Reed.

I did it yesterday and can see it was mighty cold! Total shock, but fun. It sure wakes you up. Yeah, we have a drought but I did the big splash with tons of ice.

I did the challenge in honor of patients with ALS and the ALS Foundation, patients with Spinal Muscle Atrophy (SMA) and the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation, and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation for children’s cancer research. I’ve already given to St. Baldrick’s and shaved my head this year for the third year in a row. I’ll be giving donations to the ALS and Gwendolyn Strong Foundations. Please consider giving as well.

In my video (below) I challenge Robert Lanza of Advanced Cell Technology (ACT) to do the challenge too. What do you say, Bob?
