WQXR Host Jeff Spurgeon Accepts Ice Bucket Challenge
Monday, August 25, 2014
WQXR host Jeff Spurgeon has added his name to the growing list of folks in the worlds of classical music and broadcasting who have accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge in support of the ALS Association.
In the video seen below, Spurgeon said he accepted the challenge from his colleague Liz Zazzi in memory of his friend Phil Muro, who died of ALS in 1997. In turn, he is challenging three broadcasting industry colleagues.
The Ice Bucket Challenge raises money and awareness for researching amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, which is often referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease.
