Cequent was nominated via social media by its customers at etrailer. Several CPP employees then took part in the challenge which was videotaped and posted online. Donations were also made to the ALS Association by Cequent as well as by employees in Tekonsha, Mich.; Mosinee, Wis.; and Plymouth, Mich.

“It makes me proud to see our employees come together to take part in a movement like this,” said Tom Benson, President of Cequent Performance Products. “We have a great team here at Cequent and efforts like this showcase the solidarity I see every day.”
