Buckeyes Take Pies To Face For Good Cause

Joshua Perry and his Ohio State defensive teammates took time out of their game prep Monday to do the Whipping Childhood Cancer Challenge to raise money and awareness.

Over the past few months, Ohio State linebacker Joshua Perry has been a champion for young leukemia patient and Buckeye fan Joshua Chambers, but he took that to another level Monday afternoon with his teammates.

Perry convinced teammates Taylor Decker Tyvis Powell, Michael Bennett, Darron Lee, Joe Burger, Armani Reeves and coach Luke Fickell to take part in the Whipping Childhood Cancer Challenge, a similar fundraising and awareness effort to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge but with, well, whipped cream pies.

"We're doing the Whipping Childhood Cancer Awareness Challenge, so we're taking whipped cream pies to the face," Perry said, noting that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. "We're going to donate a little bit of money -- Ohio State is going to pledge $7 dollars, that's what the challenge requires, I'm going to donate a little bit more myself. I'm doing this for Joshua Chambers, a young man who has cancer. His father, Jeremy Chambers, nominated me."
