How a guy from Toronto just got a bunch of money from AC/DC's Angus Young

How do you get a big cheque from AC/DC?  Just skate to their music while raising money for Alzheimer’s!

Malcolm Young, AC/DC guitarist and founder, dies at age 64

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.

Check out Steve’s sweet AC/DC skating pants!

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!
