Flinders University’s Pro Vice-Chancellor (International), Professor Nancy Cromar, led the way yesterday as dozens of Flinders staff and students took a Mass Ice Bucket Challenge in aid of the Motor Neurone Disease Association of South Australia (MNDASA).

Gail Jackson, Executive Director of MNDASA, was there to witness the event, which took place at the University’s Bedford Park campus.

Flinders University motor neurone disease researcher, Dr Mary-Louise Rogers, got things under way by emptying the first bucket of iced water over Professor Cromar.

  1. Was this really necessary? In South Australia we have only had strict water restrictions eased, which were originally enforced due to an over allocation of water and severe drought conditions that saw us almost KILL our water resources. We are not out of woods yet. We still need to be sensible with our water use. Couldn’t you have just donated the money? I thought people in South Australia would be more sensible with water use. Disappointed.

  2. How wonderful and innovative for a mass challenge! Well done to the whole team. Recognised lots of faces . This will raise awareness on lots of fronts, not only MND but Flinders’ research expertise, innovation, collegiality and brand awareness. Love that!
