During the recent Ebola scare, a Temple Professor is doing his part in aiding awareness for this deadly disease.
Dr. Thilo Kunkle and Philadelphia Union Midfielder Michael Lehoud, a native from Sierra Leone, teamed up to create a social media challenge. Similar to the online craze, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, the goal is to complete the challenge and post it to social media using the hashtag #kickebolainthebutt.
The rules of the challenge are simple:
1) Find a partner who will take a shot.
2) Bend over, protect your head, and use a soft ball.
3) Your partner will step 5 meters (yards) away and aims to kick the ball at your butt.
4) If your partner is able to hit your butt, you donate to a charity supporting the fight against Ebola.
5) If your partner misses, your partner donates to a charity supporting the fight against Ebola.
6) The person who bent over can nominate three people to the #KickEbolaInTheButt challenge and ask his partner for a revenge shot.
All the proceeds benefit Doctors without borders, a charity helping aid the battle of Ebola.
