BUFFALO, N.Y. – NCART Executive Director Don Clayback answered the ALS Association’s Ice Bucket Challenge last week. Clayback tied the challenge with National CRT Awareness Week, Aug. 18-24. “Things that go naturally together: salt and pepper, Abbott and Costello, peanut butter and jelly, ALS Association Ice Bucket Challenge and National CRT Awareness Week,” he wrote to members in an email with a link to a video of him performing the challenge. Before he poured a bucket of ice water over his head, Clayback said, “I just want to say to my friends, Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake and Bill Gates, stop with the emails, stop with the phone calls. I’m here. I’m going to do it.” In turn, Clayback challenged Gary Gilberti of Numotion, Doug Westerdahl of Monroe Wheelchair and Greg Packer of U.S. Rehab, all members of the NCART board of directors. “The ball, or I should say, the bucket, is in your court,” he said in the video.
