Ice Bucket Challenge
An Ice Bucket Challenge is being sent to KMLO Sports Editor Andy Shoe and Aberdeen American News Managing Editor John Papendick from a very wet and very cold Mobridge Tribune Sports Editor Jay Davis. The Ice Bucket Challenge has raised nearly $23 million in the fight to rid the world of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Along with Jay accepting the challenge, the Mobridge Tribune is sending a donation to the ALS Association to help in the fight to create a world without ALS.
