Last night about 100 people in our neighborhood gathered to take the #IceBucketChallenge. The idea is, either donate $100 to ALS research or let someone douse you with a bucket of ice water (though you could do both!).
One of my best friends, Janae, is living with ALS. Here she is (on the left) with Team Janae in the background. Before ALS, Janae was a runner, and she still is driven, stubborn, intelligent, fierce, funny, and wonderful. Team Janae runs races in her name in support of ALS research.
Here her cute, retired parents get doused with buckets of ice water.
Janae and friends react to her parents’ freezing baptism. What a remarkable group of women this is, each so talented, such a force in their individual way.
Here I take the Ice Bucket Challenge myself and call out Ricky Whittle.
