Well it's been done.  I have accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge, along side Cedar Rapids Titans General Manager Chris Kokalis.  How can you turn down a few seconds of sheer body shock for a great cause.  

For those who have yet to be challenged, or who have yet to accept, and are thinking this is "so last week", I hear ya.  That argument's been going around my circle over the last couple days, long before I was nominated.  I mean seriously, we've all seen someone dump a bucket of ice and water over their heads at least a million times over by now.  However, there's still people who don't know about ALS, and still people suffering from the disease.  And at the end of the day, it's about spreading awareness and finding the cure, and this is an outside the box idea that has worked amazingly.

On that note I propose 2 things:

  1. If you haven't been challenged, consider that changed.  I may have challenged one listener, but I'm changing that out to challenge ever single listener/reader who has yet to be challenged.  Do it, send me your video with acceptance and who you're challenging, and I'll send you something.  But don't do it for the prize, do it for the cause.
  2. I also challenge you to come up with the next challenge for a great cause.  Share with me what it is, and why you're doing it, and I'll definitely consider accepting it, and getting it started.

Best of luck, enjoy, and I look forward to hearing from you.  Send any submissions to Carson@i1071.com
