Hyatt Properties Accept the #IceBucket Challenge

By on August 26, 2014

My social media feeds are full of the videos from individuals taking the Ice Bucket Challenge to build awareness around Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) disease, also referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.  As a result of those accepting the challenge and donating to the cause, the ALS Association has raised more than $79.7 million dollars.  The monies raised will be utilized to help provide care services, discover new treatments and eventually a cure for ALS disease.

I wasn’t surprised when the #IceBucketChallenge made its way into the Hyatt world and as usual our hotels met the challenge with so much passion, enthusiasm, and creativity.  Here are a few of my favorite videos for your enjoyment!

Grand Hyatt Washington took the #IceBucketChallenge in the middle of the hotel lobby right inside of the fountain.  Watch their General Manager and leadership team get “iced”.

Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay’s General Manager, Paul Joseph, embraced the #IceBucketChallenge on behalf of his hotel.

Hyatt Regency McCormick Place took the challenge to a whole new level.  More than 80 Hyatt guests and employees got “iced” and the hotel donated to the cause on their behalf.
