Patrick Quinn - Yonkers Parade Grand Marshal for 2016



     The Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee has announced that Patrick Quinn has been selected as Grand Marshal for the 61st Annual Yonkers St. Patrick’s Day Parade in 2016.

     Quinn, a Yonkers native, is known as the creator of The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a worldwide phenomenon that has raised over $200,000,000 to help find a cure for ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.  Pat Quinn’s Irish roots come by way of Counties Armagh, Down, Cork, Clare & Westmeath.  Patrick attended St. John the Baptist Elementary School in Yonkers and graduated from Iona Preparatory School and Iona College in New Rochelle.
 
The Ice Bucket Challenge Became a Worldwide Phenomenon

     In 2013, Patrick was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 30 and quickly went to work as a forceful advocate for research and development of a treatment for the disease.  In 2014 he helped create the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which quickly became popular around the world and help raise hundreds of millions towards research.  Through his efforts, the Ice Bucket Challenge not only raised money, but it also increased awareness of the disease in the worldwide media and is credited with creating a renewed push to find a cure.

     Patrick continues to be a strong and forceful advocate for ALS funding and research through his “Quinn 4 the Win” Organization, which holds events every August to help one day find a cure for ALS.  He has spoken at countless events promoting the cause, which has included addressing the U.S. Congress and speaking at dozens of schools and other engagements.

     Patrick was nominated for the Time Magazine “Person of the Year” in 2014 and has received many accolades and awards for his efforts.  He and his wife Jennifer live in Yonkers since being married that same year.
