SANDY, Utah, Aug. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Sandy--Justin Luettgerodt, founder and Chief Executive Officer of The Aclaime Group, announced today that his team accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge offered by John Schnatter, also known as Papa John of Papa John's pizza.
"When Papa John called on me to participate in the Ice Bucket Challenge, I couldn't think of a better way to involve our team to support a great cause," said Mr. Luettgerodt. "Our team was eager to come up with a creative, fun idea that would allow us to create ALS awareness in our community. We decided to take things to the next level by using large front loaders holding hundreds of gallons of ice water."
The Aclaime team met at a construction site owned by the company in Bluffdale, Utah this morning to experience the ultimate deluge of ice water. The front loaders contained 500 gallons, or 4,170 pounds of ice water.
"We're so impressed at how thousands across this nation have come together to say 'you know what we can help with this,'" said Mr. Luettgerodt. "I am proud that our team is not only comprised of talented people who work hard, but are also willing to unify with others to raise ALS awareness for the millions of individuals affected by this horrific disease."
