Snyder, Allen, Gruden Take On ALS Ice Challenge



A Redskins-themed round of "ALS Ice Bucket Challenges" that began on Wednesday reached its climax Friday at Redskins Park.

Redskins owner Dan Snyder, President/GM Bruce Allen, head coach Jay Gruden & legendary QB Joe Theismann participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Aug. 15. Snyder also donated $10K to ALS research on behalf of the Redskins.

Redskins owner Dan Snyder, President and general manager Bruce Allen, head coach Jay Gruden, legendary quarterback Joe Theismann and senior vice president of communications Tony Wyllie each took on the freezing cold buckets of water -- which were happily dumped upon them by their players after Friday's practice -- as the effort to find a cure for this terrible disease lives on.

Snyder followed up his ice bucket challenge by donating $10,000 to ALS research on behalf of the entire Washington Redskins organization.

The Redskins challenges began Wednesday, when wide receiver Pierre Garçon and outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan took on the ice water and then passed the challenge onto NASCAR superstar and Redskins fan Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Earnhardt Jr. on Friday took the ice bucket challenge after practicing for his upcoming race at the Pure Michigan 400, and decided to challenge Snyder:

Snyder's challenge on Friday? None other than Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

Snyder was joined in the fight against ALS on Friday by Allen, Gruden, Theismann and Wyllie -- each of whom had their own interesting ice bucket challenges to pass along.

Allen challenged the Redskins Cheerleaders, Gruden challenged legendary Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs and left tackle Trent Williams, Theismann challenged former Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach, while Wyllie challenged Rich Dalrymple, the Cowboys' director of public relations.
