Meadow Park Chatham - ALS Ice Bucket Challenge 2014

By Lydia Swant

We completed our ALS flash mob bucket challenge on August 29th! It was fantastic and we cannot believe how many people showed up to support, participate and donate! Shae, a HCA at Meadow Park, had a goal of raising $500, was able to raise over $1,000 so far with plans to continue to collect until September 11th.  
 
A total of 44 people completed the ice bucket challenge including one MP Chatham resident! Several staff had their families and kids attend to participate and it was a sea of purple in support of ALS!  

We had 24 bags of ice donated by Arctic Glacier which was really helpful. We still had to get an extra cooler alongside our ice machine to top up the buckets. To set the tone we had some back up music, "Ice Ice Baby" by Vanilla Ice and when the challenge was complete "Your're As Cold as Ice" by Foreigner. There were information signs with various facts about ALS and a sign held by our staff member MaryAnn L. that said "This one is for you Suzanne" - Suzanne is MaryAnn's sister and is the inspiration for this event - she is battling ALS.

One of our residents was quite excited and happy to be a part of the event! We had other residents asking about participating but the logistics for safety just did not pan out.  

Here is a link to the Chatham Voice paper who published the story on the front page! Mary Beth Corcoran reporting from the paper and commented how impressed she was with the planning and enthusiasm of the event. I'm so proud of our team and Shae for inspiring us to get involved! This is an amazing opportunity which only began to come into fruition this past Monday.
