Claustrophobic, Isolated And Cold For ALS

 
 
Lethbridge:   In spite of a heavy course load, a numder of U-of-L students have found time to have fun and do it for a good cause. 

  The students are mostly members of the Psychology and Neuroscience club.  They have dug-in to a pile of snow outside the Students Union Building, to create a Quincee, or snow cave. They slept there Wednesday night and expect to be there Thursday night as well.   It's an effort to raise money for and awareness of A-L-S or Lou Gehrig's disease.

   Why a snow Cave?  Because it's claustrophobic and isolating. Having A-L-S has been compared to being buried alive.

  You should stop by and chat with them or offer a donation.  The snow cave will have to be demolished by noon Friday because of the weather.
