NMPF Joins USDEC Staff to Answer ALS Challenge

September 11, 2014

In response to a challenge from Hoogwegt’s Dalyn Dye and his staff, NMPF and the U.S. Dairy Export Council (with whom NMPF shares an office) showed support for the ALS Association by taking the Ice Bucket Challenge. The Ice Bucket Challenge swept across the country late this summer as an awareness initiative for the ALS Association, an organization founded to draw attention to and help fight the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

USDEC President Tom Suber (right in photo) challenged Dave Thomas, Jerry Dryer, and Jerry Kozak to complete their own challenges. NMPF President & CEO Jim Mulhern (left in photo) challenged NMPF member cooperatives to support the cause as well.
