MC Accepts the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

by Mike Connealy on 08.24.2014

As always, ProAg’s President & CEO, Michael Connealy, has tackled a challenge laid before him head on. This time it was the ALS #IceBucketChallenge thrown his way by one of the ProAg employees.

MC was proud to accept the challenge and to make a donation to the ALS research cause. The goal of this challenge is to help raise awareness and dollars to help #StrikeOutALS. And as with all the #ALSIceBucket challenges accepted, MC has nominated Wick Manley of AgStar and Jim Baldanado of The Home Agency to be the next people to help raise awareness.

With only about half of the general public knowledgeable about amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, the Ice Bucket Challenge is making a profound difference. Since July 29, The ALS Association has welcomed more than 1.3 million new donors to the cause.
