The Making of an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Today I was honored to join  throngs of others around the world who have answered the ALS Ice Bucket  Challenge. Last Friday our Canada Contractor Connection Team challenged the management team at Contractor Connection‘s headquarters in Jacksonville to match their Ice Bucket Challenge.

Employees worked tirelessly all day procuring matching buckets and staging the scene in front the building. The ice proved to be more challenging than first anticipated as our industrial ice maker that can keep 200+ thirsty Contractor Connection staff cool all day was exhausted before noon and we were still a little short of the needed supply.  Intrepid admins dashed off to buy the remaining ice needed.

At 4:20 pm we assembled for a brief run through and then the camera started rolling and you see the result below.  Thanks to all the staff who (some of them a little too gleefully) chipped in to make this a very memorable experience.

I am, at heart, a software developer though I am currently managing a small Information Technology department for a mid sized company located in my hometown of Jacksonville, FL. When I am not playing with the latest smart-phone or trying to become inspired to write code I read almost anything I can get my hands on from Pulp Era adventures to biographies of world leaders and everything in between.
