Yonkers AOH Supports ALS Ice Bucket Challenge



Yonkers Division Supports Ice Bucket Challenge Creator Patrick Quinn



Nearly 500 people participated the Ice Bucket Challenge in Yonkers

     Members of the Myles Scully Division #1 of Yonkers took part in the Annual “Ice Bucket Challenge” which was held on August 7th at Empire City Casino at Yonkers Raceway.  The Ice Bucket Challenge is the worldwide phenomenon that was created by Yonkers native Patrick Quinn to provide funding for ALS research. Patrick was diagnosed with ALS (commonly know as Lou Gerhig’s Disease) in March of 2013.

     Pat created the Ice Bucket Challenge in 2014, and he has worked tirelessly as an ALS research advocate ever since.  To date, The Ice Bucket Challenge is responsible for raising over $220 million dollars towards finding a cure for ALS.  These funds were recently credited with enabling a scientific breakthrough when researchers were able to isolate a particular gene that is responsible for causing the disease.

     Patrick Quinn himself has personally helped raise funds through his “Quinn 4 the Win” charity, which has held local ALS fundraising events in the Yonkers area for the past several years.  It was recently learned that Pat's condition has deteriorated, and he will soon require a special wheelchair as well as a vehicle equipped to meet his personal needs for him to continue his busy schedule of appearances and speaking events.

     Division #1 was proud to present Patrick with a $2,000 donation at the event.  These funds will go directly towards helping him acquire these necessities.
