RRHS Dragon Band Takes the #ALSIceBucketChallenge
What do you do with 359 sweaty band kids, 3 band directors, and 362 bright orange "LET'S DO THIS" Home Depot buckets? You take the #ALSIceBucketChallenge
The Dragon Band, with assistance from the Jaillet family, took the #ALSIceBucketChallenge on Tuesday, August 19th and challenged the Cedar Ridge HS Band, the James Bowie HS Marching Band, as well as our friends in the Blue Springs Golden Regiment Band out of Blue Springs, MO..
According to www.alsa.org, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Approximately 5,600 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with ALS each year. The incidence of ALS is two per 100,000 people, and it is estimated that as many as 30,000 Americans may have the disease at any given time.
The Dragon Band will be taking donations at tomorrow night's Parent Preview Night at Dragon Band Stadium and will combine the donations with what was raised prior to the challenge. One large donation will be made to the ALS Association (www.alsa.org) and the amount will be announced at the conclusion of tomorrow night's event.
Our extreme thanks and gratitude goes out to the Jaillet family (www.mjsarmy.org), to The Home Depot (I-35 & Louis Henna - Round Rock), Bush's Chicken, Freddy's Frozen Custard, The Corner Bakery, and to all of the Dragon Band families for helping us pull off this tremendous feat. We could not have done it without you!
