Sooke SEAPARC staff and others take the ice bucket challenge

People are getting water dumped on them and the goal is to raise awareness of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).  Steve Knoke, manager at SEAPARC has invited staff and SEAPARC participants to donate via the Facebook page @ als.ca.  They are not currently tracking their contributions.

The challenge involves people getting doused with buckets of ice water on video, posting that video to social media, then nominating others to do the same, all in an effort to raise ALS awareness.  People can either accept the challenge or make a donation to an ALS Charity of their choice, or do both.

The SEAPARC team passed on the challenge to the District of Sooke staff. Mike Hicks passed the challenge on to Sooke mayor and council as well as District of Sooke staff. Hicks was taking up the challenge presented to him by the City of Esquimalt.

The participants from left to right are: Darcy Smith, Tara Seeburger, Megan MacKeigan, Morgan Gurbersky, Steve Knoke, Mike Hicks, Bryce McMath, Angela Petrie, Arran Wass-Little, Norris Wass-Little. Not shown in photo is Dylan Mack. The dumpers are kids at SEAPARC summer camp. They loved doing it!
