The 7th Annual Pittsburgh CEO Soak is the “dressed up" version of the Ice Bucket Challenge that engages corporate leadership to get soaked while raising money and awareness to benefit The ALS Association Western Pennsylvania Chapter. Over 6 years, the CEO Soak has raised more than $850,000 to provide local families living with ALS no-cost services like durable medical equipment, multidisciplinary clinics, transportation to medical appointments, and home visits with specialists. Your efforts also fund local, state-wide, and national advocacy as well as innovative research for a cure.
