Faculty participate in fundraising for ALS

The Neuroscience Club poured a bucket of ice on Director of Student Rights and Responsibilities James Jackson on Monday, Oct. 1. This capped the club’s drive to raise money for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, which include a fundraiser and participation in the Columbus Walk to Defeat ALS, which occured on Sept. 23.

The fundraiser, which is now in its second year, revolves around money jars where students can vote for certain professors or administrators to have a bucket of ice water dumped on their head. This year, Jackson was chosen by a mere $6.51.

In total, more money came from community members passionate about the cause than students. The club raised $893 total, $150 of which came from students via tabling in Peirce Hall according to the President of the Neuroscience Club Ethan Bradley ’20. They fell just short of their $1000 goal.
