This morning our Mayor challenged all DSM metro mayors to the ALS ice bucket challenge. The video is in our YouTube channel.
I also have it above as an attachment, if that is better for you.
Here is more information on the challenge:
This week the Johnston School Board challenged Johnston Mayor Paula Dierenfeld (deer-en-feld) and the Johnston City Council to the ALS ice bucket challenge. This morning, at the conclusion of the Mayor’s Run for the Trails 5K in Johnston, Mayor Dierenfeld accepted the challenge. A lucky resident won the chance to dump the ice water on her. Now, Mayor Dierenfeld challenges all Des Moines metro mayors to take the challenge as well. We will be posting this on other metro city Facebook pages and Twitter feeds in the hopes they accept!
About 100 people attended the Johnston Mayor’s Run for the Trails 5K, with all the proceeds going to benefit upkeep, expansion and improvements to Johnston trails. The city of Johnston has 34+ miles of wonderful trails, many of them connecting to trails in Urbandale and Des Moines.
You can find and use any photos from the race that we have posted on our City of Johnston Facebook http://www.facebook.com/cityofjohnstoniowa page.
