Harrison School of Pharmacy Accepts Ice Bucket Challenge

Aug. 25, 2014

AUBURN UNIVERSITY, Ala. – More than 50 students, faculty and staff members from Auburn’s Harrison School of Pharmacy accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Monday afternoon in front of the Walker Building. The group accepted the challenge from former Auburn great Bo Jackson, who challenged the university.

“As future health care professionals, it is important to us to accept this challenge and get involved with this great cause,” said HSOP student council vice president Tyler Dalton. “The Ice Bucket Challenge has brought needed exposure to this terrible disease. We definitely want to do our part, both monetarily and as part of the challenge, to bring more awareness and raise money for further research.”

The Harrison School of Pharmacy now challenges the Auburn University School of Nursing (@AUNursing1979), the McWhorter School of Pharmacy (@MSOPLife) and the University of Alabama-Birmingham School of Medicine (@UABSOM).

In addition to those that participated in the challenge, students raised more than $1,000 that will be donated to the ALS Association.
