Check out J.T. Brown as he accepts the Ice Bucket Challenge.
All week long, we have been showing you numerous Tampa Bay Lightning players as they have stepped up to the plate to complete the Ice Bucket Challenge. Today, another one of our boys in blue is taking the plunge.
For those of you who do not know, ALS is short for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
If you would like more information on how the disease affects the body and the research that is being done to combat the disease, you can visit the ALS Association’s Official Site. It is filled with information about not just their research, but how you can get involved yourself.
Just in case you still aren’t familiar with the Ice Bucket Challenge, here is how it goes.
Once a person has completed the challenge themselves, which involves videotaping yourself as you dump a bucket of ice cold water over your head and proclaim your support for the cause, that person then has the opportunity to call out other people to complete the challenge.
Once the gauntlet has been thrown down, the person in question then has 24 hours to respond to the challenge. If they choose not to participate, then they are encouraged to make a donation to the charity of their choice which supports ALS.
The next Lightning player to step up to the plate is J.T. Brown.
Let’s take a look as Tampa Bay Lightning right wing J.T. Brown accepts the Ice Bucket Challenge in order to raise awareness for ALS.
After completing the challenge, J.T. Brown laid down the gauntlet for Syracuse Crunch left wing Danick Gauthier, Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Justin Faulk, and Tampa Bay Lightning center Tyler Johnson.
The bucket is now in your court, gentlemen!
