    Aug. 19, 2014

    The Administration of the UIC Athletic Department is embracing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Athletic Director Jim Schmidt and Senior Associate Athletic Director/SWA Tonya McGowan accepted the UIC Swimming & Diving program’s challenge Tuesday morning. Schmidt and McGowan have challenged three staff members of the Horizon League office: Commissioner Jonathan B. LeCrone, Senior Associate Commissioner Alfreeda Goff and Deputy Commissioner Julie Roe Lach.

    The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge requires nominated participants to have a bucket of ice water poured on their head. One common stipulation gives 24 hours to complete the dare from the time they are nominated and donate a minimum of $10; otherwise, the participant has to donate $100 to charity.
