D-87 Superintendent Larson takes ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

A group of Glenbard East High School fine arts students challenged their district superintendent to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge earlier this week.

He did not disappoint them.

Glenbard Township High School District 87 posted a video Thursday of Superintendent David Larson taking the challenge, with assistance from the students.

Larson performed the challenge in front of staff members at an orientation meeting Thursday.

He accepted the challenge – in dress clothes – and challenged the superintendents of the district's six feeder schools: Loren May, Victoria Tabbert, Paul Gordon, interim superintendent Kenneth Cull, John Perdue and William Shields.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is an awareness campaign in which participants nominate friends and family to donate to fight ALS and/or dump a bucket of ice water on themselves.

As of Thursday, the ALS Association has received $41.8 million in donations since the introduction of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge compared to $2.1 million during the same period last year, according to the nonprofit's website.
