ALS CEO Soak keeps support pouring in for ALS in RI

The CEO Soak fundraising finale has begun with the ALS Rhode Island chapter exceeding their original goal of $75,000 due to the outpouring of support from the corporate community in the state.

AMICA Insurance has raised over $41,000 with their CEO Soak team. The top ten fundraising teams will be featured on NBC 10 on August 5 when the grand CEO Soak finale will be featured.

The companies currently in the top ten include AMICA Insurance, Neighborhood Health Plan of RI, DiGregorio Construction and Insperity.

Funds raised through the CEO Soak will support local ALS care service programs and vital research in the search for new treatments and a cure.

“The support and excitement we have seen for the CEO Soak among the business community has been inspiring and truly outstanding,” says Beth Flanagan, executive director of the ALS Association RI Chapter.  “We are excited to show the country how dedicated the Ocean State is in the fight against ALS.”

Today’s event with the Governor and Secretary of State at the RI State House has been canceled.

July is being recognized as Ice Bucket Challenge Month and today there will be a recognition event at the Boston Seaport to remember Pete Frates and the iconic event that has raised so many millions for ALS research.

Rhode Islanders can support the event by visiting and making a donation today!
