Following Convocation August 22, Grand Valley President Thomas J. Haas participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
The online campaign, which has gone viral, aims to raise awareness and research funds for ALS, a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.
In the video, Haas nominated Saginaw Valley State University President Donald Bachand and Lewis Stone of “Hey There Laker” to participate in the challenge.
A group of international students at Grand Valley nominated Louie the Laker and others from the Grand Valley community to participate in the challenge. See the video here.
