<b><i>Brain freeze…</b><br></i>
Zax Restaurant employees Heidi Perez, Dana Sutton, Autem Jones, and Zach Valerio participate in the “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge” in Moab on Thursday, Aug. 21. Two  fellow workers, Cade Halstead and Vanessa Scow, later followed suit by getting doused with buckets of ice water. Other Zax employees who had previously taken part in the popular fundraising campaign included Judy Copeland, Dillon Bowen, and Ross Tabberer. Right before getting soaked, each participant challenged friends, family members, and even employees of competing area restaurants to join in. The rapidly growing effort started in late July to raise awareness and money in the fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a neurological disorder also commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. According to national news reports, the viral campaign has generated $90 million in one month’s time, including a staggering $66 million Aug. 20 to 27. Dozens of Moab residents of all ages have taken to Facebook and other social media sites, posting videos of themselves completing the challenge. Nationwide, numerous celebrities, politicians, television personalities, and sports stars have also joined in the action. The idea is to either accept the challenge and get doused with ice water (while still making a suggested donation of at least $10 to The ALS Association), or donate $100 in lieu of getting soaked.
