Lou Gehrig was one of the best players to ever set foot on a baseball diamond. His streak of games without missing a start stood for decades until it was finally surpassed in the 1990s. The man was a machine, indestructible...until he was stricken with ALS.
ALS affects more than 30,000 Americans and is more commonly known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease” after one its earliest and most famous victims. Today the Blog About a Dog takes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to draw attention to this illness that is so closely associated with one of baseball’s best. Below is the video of your Hot Dog Explorer taking the challenge. It is customary to call out others to take the challenge as well. In case you don’t have time to watch the video I call out the following to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge:
Andie Nelson of Edelman
Stacy Becker, the Special Executive Assistant to the President of Lohr Hot Dog Explorations
Rick Bennett, CIO of T.D. Williamson, Inc.
And any executive of the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council
It’s refreshing and exhilarating...trust me.
And please do what you can to help eradicate ALS.
