Today, Monday, August 31, 2015, members of the Boston Police Department got soaked with ice water as they took part in the second annual Ice Bucket Challenge! Commissioner William Evans and Superintendent-in-Chief William Gross led the charge as over 100 BPD employees, both sworn and civilian, dumped ice over their heads to raise awareness for ALS research. This year’s BPD Ice Bucket Challenge was performed in honor of one patient in particular, Boston Police Sergeant Detective Richard Clancy, who was recently diagnosed with this devastating disease. Sergeant Detective Clancy and his family also attended the event this morning.
Of course, the BPD IBC would not have been possible without buckets and ice, so we would like to shout out a huge thank you to Kevin Gosnell of ALS Knights (ALSKnights.org) for lending us buckets and to Brookline Ice for donating the ice.
For your viewing pleasure, we've provided several video angles! And once again, we challenge the men and women of the Boston Fire Department to complete the challenge!
