Soloway Wright takes on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
Aug 26, 2014
By now I’m sure you have all heard about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. This challenge was started by Pete Frates, a former Boston College baseball player, who has been diagnosed with ALS. It began as a challenge to a few friends and teammates but has become a movement that has captivated people across the world as it raises awareness and money for ALS.
On August 26, 2014, the staff at Soloway Wright took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. However, we added a few twists. The way it worked at our firm was that over the previous two weeks any member of the firm could, for a minimum donation of $20, nominate anyone to take the challenge. Once nominated you could either accept the challenge and get wet or match the donation and stay dry. But we added one more wrinkle. Being a law firm we are quite familiar with insurance, so we instituted an umbrella insurance policy, where lawyers or clerks who did not want to get wet could, for a minimum of $100, hold an umbrella when the water got poured on top of them.
Overall Soloway Wright’s Ice Bucket Challenge was able to raise over $2500 for ALS!
Now Soloway Wright challenge Michael Waters and all the staff and management at Minto to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and to try and raise more money than our firm for this great cause!
