Puerto Vallarta takes on the Ice Bucket Challenge

Puerto Vallarta takes on the Ice Bucket Challenge

Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board
August 21 2014

The ice bucket challenge is the latest internet craze, involving people pouring cold water over themselves and posting their videos online.

Well-known names from Cristiano Ronaldo and Lady Gaga to Bill Gates and Jennifer Lopez have taken the plunge to raise money and awareness for the ALS Association and now it's our turn!  640,000 donors have raised $32 million USD since the program kicked-off on August 1st.

We need you and your friends this Tuesday, August 26th at 7pm to take the challenge.  Bring a small bucket to the new pier and we will coordinate the rest.

Costa Imagine Visual Productions y Skyvideo  will be deploying their drone to capture photos and videos. Upon successful completion of the challenge, participants are asked to update their social media pages by using the graphics at http://www.alsa.org/fight-als/ice-bucket-challenge.html  and use the hashtags #icebucketchallenge and #alsicebucketchallenge to help spread awareness about the organization.  We would also like to challenge our friends in Palm Springs (California), Toronto (Canada) and Guadalajara (Mexico) to accept the challenge.

For those concern about wasting water, we are going to use the ocean water, so don´t worry about it and come to have a good time!
