The challenge of challenges

Bishop Machebeuf High School’s new principal Marc Nestorick ran through a gauntlet of 30 ice water buckets dumped by the senior class Sept. 5. Catholic school principals and teachers participated in the social media phenomenon called the ice bucket challenge to raise money in support of ALS research. Machebeuf students raised more than $800 for the John Paul II Medical Research Institute. “Many of the (students) made sacrifices to raise this money,” Nestorick said. “They gave up a coffee or a bag of chips. They used that money to make a contribution to this important cause. This is truly an example of what is right in the Catholic schools.”
