You may be getting tired of seeing ALS Ice Bucket Challenges fill up your news feed or timeline, but the folks at the ALS Association are grateful. As of this writing, the ALS Ice Bucket challenge has raised more than $88.5 million for ALS research.
It didn’t take long for the Ice Bucket Challenge to reach the SLCC campus and college administrators. Peter Moosman, SLCC student and employee, issued a challenge to SLCC Interim President Deneece Huftalin.
Hey @SaltLakeCC, I nominated @SLCCHuftalin for the #IceBucketChallenge. Help motivate her to accept! ;) https://t.co/gWz6SV0DiA

She accepted the challenge along with Kevin Dustin, Athletic Director, his wife, Danene, and Tanya Schmidt, Administrative Assistant. The SLCC cheerleading squad and the men’s basketball team were assigned the important task of dumping the cold ice water.
Challenge accepted and completed! @SaltLakeCC now the @SLCCStudentLife EC needs to step up and donate #IceBucketChallenge

The Ice Bucket Challenge involves people getting doused with buckets of ice water on video, posting that video to social media with the hashtag #IceBucketChallenge, then nominating others to do the same, all in an effort to raise ALS awareness. People can either accept the challenge or make a donation to an ALS Charity of their choice, or do both.
To continue the challenge, Deneece nominated the Huftalin men (Tim, Max, and Eli) as well as the Student Body Officers. Kevin nominated the rest of the athletic directors as well as the Scenic West Conference, and Tanya challenged all the student athletes.
