About CEO Soak-Rhode Island

Rhode Island's 1st Annual CEO Soak is a reimagined version of the Ice Bucket Challenge encouraging the business community to get "soaked" while raising funds and awareness for The ALS Association Rhode Island Chapter in support of people living with ALS and their families.

The ALS Association has been hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis. 80% of the Chapter’s funding is now at risk due to altered fundraising events. But ALS does not stop, so neither can we. Your participation helps support local ALS care service programs.

Step 1: Register to participate

Step 2: Fundraise, fundraise, fundraise!

Log into your participant portal, to access sample emails, socail media, fundraising tools and ALS facts.
Start by making a self-donation. Next, send emails to your network and/or staff asking them to help you hit your goal. Use these sample email templates or pull some ALS statistics from here to explain the impact your fundraising has on the ALS community. Share your progress on social media for more exposure!

Step 3: Get Soaked

Due to social distancing guidelines and to ensure the safety of our community the Soak will be virtual this year! Film your "Soak" with your team and submit it to the chapter by July 30th. Your "Soak Video" will be featured on our social media platforms!

Some ideas for your DIY Soak:
• At home: Shower, Ice Bucket Challenge, Pool, Hose
• At office: Hose, Ice Bucket Challenge, Employees Soaking You
• Elsewhere: Friends House, Fountain Near You, Beach, Town Park, Fire Station
