Donovan accepts icy challenge from Chief Flynn

Alderman vows ice bucket challenge will create big splash but ‘won’t budge a single hair’

Alderman Bob Donovan has accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge issued by Police Chief Edward Flynn, and will answer the challenge this evening at McKiernan’s Irish Pub at S. 37th and W. Becher Streets.

“It will be a bit icy, a bit chilly, but I’m predicting my hair won’t move,” the grinning alderman said of the challenge this morning.

Alderman Donovan said the challenge is “in the spirit of fun,” but it also hits close to home. “About 10 years ago I lost a dear childhood friend to ALS. He was someone I grew up with, and played football with back in my teen years,” he said. “I am more than happy to help fight ALS.”
