I have a challenge for everyone in the Pearl Jam community.
As most of you know that Mike McCready from Pearl Jam is a full supporter of Steve Gleason and Team Gleason. Steve Gleason suffers ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) which is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
This is a disease that no one should suffer through at all. ALS needs to find a cure. Steve is an amazing guy and we want to get tons of people to help me put together this little project.
We want you to take a picture of yourself with “No White Flags” written somewhere on your body. You can have people join you in the picture, just have fun with it! We will put your picture into a collage with the others and send it off to Team Gleason. It’s not much but it’s showing support to Steve and Team Gleason.. We will also be donating $100 to this foundation. You can also help by donating. (x) The challenge ends on September 30th! Please send your picture to email@example.com!
Let’s do this!
Steve Gleason challenges Mike McCready and friends to do the Ice Bucket Challenge! Now to patiently wait for Mike to do it!
