Mayor McGlynn ALS ice bucket challenge

On Thursday afternoon Mayor Michael McGlynn gamely took part in the ALS ice bucket challenge, a movement that has spread virally through social media over the past few days. The challenge is an effort to raise awareness of ALS, or “Lou Gehrig’s disease.”

In a video posted on the City of Medford’s website, Mayor McGlynn calls out three Medford residents to accept the challenge. The Mayor said he was asked by friend Kelly South, who had a family member with ALS, to participate.

    Great way to raise awareness! Great to see Mayor McGlynn has a sense of humor and doesn’t take himself too seriously.
