LIVINGSTON, NJ - On Friday, Sept. 5, Harrison came together in true community fashion to help others and have fun at the same time. Willing staff members, and students in grades 1-5, accepted Harrison Principal Cindy Healy’s Ice Bucket Challenge, to raise funds for ALS research.

So far, the ice Bucket Challenge has helped the charity raise more than a hundred million dollars for the A.L.S. Association, which supports research and care for those living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Harrison students donated $1 each to the cause and for a chance dump a cup of ice water on their heads.

After donating money, they gathered on the blacktop and doused themselves with water, while other staff and students—including the entire Kindergarten Family—cheered them on.

Take a look at the video, and then be sure to scroll down to see some photos. What a cool way to end the first week of school on a hot and humid Friday afternoon and a great start to a new school year.
