Principal Marcus Englund completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge today. Principal Casey Zordani from Estrella High School challenged Englund to complete the challenge. Mr. Englund challenged Principals Danielle Calderon (Skyview HS), Mike Olguin (Desert Hills HS), Lisa Nahrgang (Discover U Elem), and Michele Kaye Chief Operating from The Leona Group to complete the challenge or donate $100 to ALS.
Why participate in the Challenge?
As of Monday, August 25, The ALS Association has received $79.7 million in donations compared to $2.5 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 25). These donations have come from existing donors and 1.7 million new donors to The Association.
The ALS Association’s mission includes providing care services to assist people with ALS and their families through a network of chapters working in communities across the nation and a global research program focused on the discovery of treatments and eventually a cure for the disease. In addition, The Association’s public policy efforts empower people to advance public policies in our nation’s Capital that respond to the needs of people with ALS.
