How do you get a big cheque from AC/DC? Just skate to their music while raising money for Alzheimer’s!
Steve McNeil is a hockey ref in Toronto and every year since 2012 he’s done a “1926 Skate” campaign. He skates for 19 hours and 26 minutes straight to raise money for Alzheimer’s awareness, and he does it while listening to AC/DC. He says the music keeps him going through the wee hours of the night.

AC/DC guitarist Angus Young heard about the fundraising effort and donated $19,260 to the cause. Steve is also encouraging the public to donate a more manageable $19.26 on his website.
On Big Afternoons he explained the meaning behind the name “1926 Skate” and how Angus got in touch with him
Great job Steve, keep rocking some AC/DC!
