ALS Walk & Coin Drive Challenge

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease) is a motor neuron disease that gradually paralyzes a person until they are unable to control their muscles. You are probably already familiar with the Ice Bucket Challenge. Charlie Lake School has challenged SD 60 schools to raise more funds than they do.

We are doing a coin drive to raise money for ALS. You can donate any amount by coin, cash or cheque. As well you can donate online with a credit card.

Alwin Holland School – ALS Donation

Please let your child’s teacher know if you have donated this way so that the amount can be recorded for your child’s class.

Top class by total and top class by weight will get to dump a bucket of ice cold water on one of the admin or other staff members.

Deadline for donations: Thursday, May 31st

We will do a walk and ice water dumping later in June.
