Liberty University President Jerry Falwell and wife Becki take on ice bucket challenge, call out freshman class with fire hose
Date:8/15/2014

Lynchburg, Va. (PRWEB) August 16, 2014

After treating incoming students to a cookout in the concourse of Williams Stadium before Friday night’s annual President’s Kickoff, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell and his wife, Becki, took the Ice Bucket Challenge in support of the ALS Association.

“Becki and I were challenged by (women’s soccer assistant coach) Laura Armstrong in the last 24 hours, so we want to do our part,” President Falwell said.

Two members of Liberty’s cheerleading squad stood on the shoulders of teammates with large buckets of cold water and proceeded to pour them onto the Falwells’ heads, to the cheers of the approximately 4,200 incoming freshmen and transfer students in attendance.

President Falwell then made a surprise challenge to the Class of 2018, inviting students to take part in the fundraising effort and spraying many in the crowd with water from a fire hose.

“We just didn’t want you to ever forget your first day, your first big event at Liberty,” he said. “I think that’s one you’ll remember. I know I will.”

Falwell said the university is making a generous donation to the organization.

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, has touched the lives of Liberty faculty and administrators lately. Sharon Schwartz, the wife of School of Communications professor Stuart Schwartz, died in January from the condition.
