Pouring a bucket of ice-water on your head is not just a good way to cool (WAY) down; it is also a way to raise awareness and money for research on ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. This trend has hit all streams of social media with a bang – friends challenging friends, or rivals, or even Red Sox players and Boston PD.
If you’ve been challenged, or just want to participate, but don’t want to take the plunge alone, join Boston.com and a whole slew of people today at 1:00 pm in the Copley Square Lawn! Ice, buckets, and water will be provided for you; all you need to do is show up and be mentally prepared for the iciness! Afterwards, you can make challenges of your own. If your friends are not up to it, they can always donate money instead (a win-win solution!).
So – if you want to be a part of the excitement, head on over to Copley in an hour! You can watch Jason Varitek and his wife take the challenge in preparation!
