Taking the challenge at Hall High School

No ... it wasn't another rainy day which caused Hall High School students to get drenched Friday on the school's softball field. Instead, Hall High School senior Josie Wales organized an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and invited her classmates and friends to participate in the popular fundraiser. The Spring Valley Fire Department helped by agreeing to spray the students with water. Have you or someone you known taken the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge? If so, send the BCR your photo along with information on who is in the photo, when and where to news@bcrnews.com.
