I hate cold water, so I normally avoid swimming and bathing in it. However, all that changed this past weekend when my cousin, Adam Reeve, nominated me to participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Standing on the dock at my uncle's cottage in Port Franks, I accepted Adam's challenge as my entire family watched. It's for charity, after all, so I could hardly refuse. His brother, Ben, assisted me by dumping the bucket on my head. Damn, that was cold!
Now, it's my turn to nominate others to join. I extend the Ice Bucket Challenge to my friends Vicky Kokkali (Athens, Greece), Eugene Vishnevsky (Minsk, Belarus) and Jaeho Lee (Busan, South Korea). You have 24 hours to respond, and don't forget to donate to help this great cause.
