Several CBC’ers have gotten on board with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that’s sweeping social media. Many WRAL staffers recently took the plunge, inspired by meeting Chris Rosati, a man who despite his ALS diagnosis has been inspiring other to think BIGG. The idea is simple, dump a bucket of ice water on your head or make a donation to an ALS charity. And then nominate others to do the same.

Corp HR Admin Asst Mary Eaton and HRIS/Benefits Administrator Sandy Ceppos snapped some pix behind the scenes when Lynda Loveland took the challenge last week. They kindly shared these photos with capcom.
Loveland took the challenge on Friday, August 15, 2014, from her WRAL Morning News on FOX 50 co-anchor Michelle Marsh.
“Michelle came up with the idea but then she was going out of town and couldn’t participate,” said Loveland. “Convenient I think.”
Loveland’s husband and two younger children did the honors of dumping the bucket of ice cold water on her.
“My family had a blast participating and had a hard time stopping when it was supposed to be over!” she said.
Even though got pretty chilly, Loveland is happy she took part.
“The best part of it though was that Chris Rosati was able to be there,” said Loveland. “He has been such a catalyst for raising awareness for ALS. He is truly inspirational for all that he’s done. Lives will be saved because of him.”
Check out video of a few other WRAL staffers who’ve taken the challenge:
