Whether you like the challenge or not, there's no arguing about the positive impact the Ice Bucket Challenge has made in supporting the ALS Association. Contributions to ALSA have exceeded $13 million to date, up from just over $1 million this time last year.
Raising awareness is a great first step, but supporting a cause financially truly makes a difference. Visit www.alsohio.org for more information about this devastating disease and how you can help.
In the meantime, OTF director, Brian Laurent accepted the challenge and issues it to Dean Bruce McPheron of Ohio State, the OSU Turf Team and OTF members. Brian will also be making a contribution to ALS Central & Southern Ohio and ALS Northern Ohio.
OTF members accepting this challenge should post it on Twitter using the hashtag, #OTFALSICE...videos submitted by the end of September will be eligible for a complimentary, three day individual registration to the OTF Conference & Show and OSU Green Industry Short Course.
Get creative, have some fun and support a tremendous cause!
