Chilly challenge

People across the nation are taking part in a chilly campaign to raise money for the fight against ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Participants in the “Ice Bucket Challenge” pour a bucket of ice water over their heads, or have “helpers” do it, and challenge others to do the same or make a donation to fight ALS within 24 hours. The challenge, and photos and videos of participants, have gone viral. On Wednesday, taking the challenge in Findlay were Karl Heminger, top, publisher of The Courier; and Connie Ament, down, superintendent of Blanchard Valley Center. (Little can be seen of Ament except her smile). Between July 29 and Wednesday, the ALS Association said it received $31.5 million in donations, compared to $1.9 million during the same period last year. Its website is www.alsa.org.
