This morning, MIT President L. Rafael Reif accepted a double #IceBucketChallenge from Harvard President Drew Faust and the MIT Edgerton Center. The ice bucket challenge is raising funds to help scientists research the causes of and potential treatments for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
President Reif invited the MIT community to participate, and he dedicated the event to Karolina Fraczkowska '01, whose husband recently died of the disease.
Reif now challenges Shruti Sharma, president of the MIT Undergraduate Association; Kendall Nowocin, president of the MIT Graduate Student Council; Thomas Rosenbaum, president of the California Institute of Technology; Christina Paxson, president of Brown University; and Nicholas Dirks, chancellor of UC Berkeley.
