August 28, 2014 - 4:11 PM

Regent University School of Law accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in grand fashion with more than 250 students, faculty and staff dousing themselves with ice water for an important pro-life cause.

Positive news coverage followed the event at WAVY television at http://wavy.com/2014/08/21/regent-takes-ice-bucket-challenge-with-pro-life-twist/. Dean Jeffrey A. Brauch noted that "one of my favorite outcomes was how the event fostered camaraderie and community."

Regent made a generous donation, along with the participants' donations, to the John Paul II Medical Research Institute for their pro-life approach to research, consistent with Regent's values, and for the Institute's research application to a wide variety of illnesses, including ALS.   Christian law leadership toward life-enhancing objectives in research makes an impact for life and restoring families.
