Raw Egg Challenge


Grand Valley State University’s Battle of the Valley’s (BOV) committee has created a challenge for student all across the Allendale, Grand Rapids, and other satellite campuses. As an effort to raise money for the Laker Children's’ Fund (LCF), the well renowned charity that the profits will go towards. Some few years ago, a similar challenge the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was created and used all over the world to raise money and awareness to fight ALS. The challenge was to dump a bucket of ice cold water over one’s own head once nominated by someone else. If failure to partake in the act of dumping the ice water on their head if nominated, the nominee would be held accountable for donating $100 to the cause. ALS foundation raised over $115 million. Like this challenge, the BOV team is proposing to start one. The differences are as follows: One must crack an egg on their head if nominated and post it on social media for proof of participation, failure to do so within 24 hours, he/she/etc must donate a minimum of $10 to the LCF. Donation link found below.
