Washington, PA --- The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association is pleased to make a $3,000 donation to the ALS Association, raised through the organization’s “Ice Bucket Challenge.” 

Over 40 Meadows horsemen, led by track announcer Roger Huston, got together in the paddock prior to the races on Friday night (August 22) for a group challenge, and MSOA Executive Secretary Kim Hankins took the opportunity to issue a challenge to the members of the Pennsylvania Harness Horsemen’s Association and the United States Trotting Association.


Donations were collected from not only those that participated in the challenge, but also from horsemen that were unable to attend. In all, $3,000 was raised. “The ice bucket challenge really brought together our group for a fun event,” said MSOA President Rich Gillock. “We are pleased to be able to support this very worthy cause and we thank our horsemen and women for their generosity.”
