An ALS challenge is on: The head of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Ray Conner, joined countless others in taking the “Ice Bucket Challenge” on Thursday to support the ALS Association, a nonprofit group fighting amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
The ALS Association isn’t the first to use the ice bucket challenge to raise money, but it’s campaign has gone viral on social media. Participants include former Pres. George W. Bush and Steven Spielberg, and the association has raised nearly $42 million since late July.
Here’s how it works: Someone challenges you to dump a bucketful of ice cold water on your head, you do, you make a donation to an ALS charity, you post it on social media and challenge others to do the same.
EVA Air’s chairman, Chang Kuo-Wei, challenged Conner.
Conner did not say how much he is donating. He challenged Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson, GE Aviation CEO David Joyce, Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly and Cathay Pacific executive James Barrington.
