Grateful O.J. Brigance Issues Another Challenge

Posted Aug 13, 2014

The #IceBucketChallenge has caught fire. Now, O.J. Brigance encourages charitable donations for ALS research.

Social media has gone crazy in the last week with the #IceBucketChallenge.

The challenge, which calls on people to dump a bucket of ice over their heads, was started as a way to raise awareness for the disease Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease. The idea is that people will dump the ice bucket, or make a donation to fight ALS.

The Ravens have embraced the challenge, as Head Coach John Harbaugh, General Manager Ozzie Newsome, wide receivers Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones and kicker Justin Tucker are just a few of the people within the organization who accepted. You can watch all of those videos below (mobile users tap the View in Browser link at the top of the page to view).

Raising awareness about ALS hits home for the Ravens, as former player O.J. Brigance is currently battling the disease. Brigance is currently the team’s Senior Advisor to Player Development, and he released a statement Wednesday, urging people to donate for the cause.

“The viral support the #ALSIceBucketChallenge has grown an unprecendted support and awareness for the ALS community. We all have to thank Peter Frates for coming up with the challenge to make ALS a relevant topic. This has been a fun way to get the world talking about ALS.

“However, I want to challenge everybody to not only talk, or just accept the Ice Bucket Challenge, but to give. Please go to my website: BriganceBrigrade.org to make a donation to help us fight ALS. Keep the ice buckets dumping, everybody!”
