In recent weeks, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has gone viral.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on someone’s head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research. The challenge dares nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and then nominating others to do the same. A common stipulation is that nominated participants have 24 hours to comply or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
Since July 29, 2014, the ALS Association has received $115 Million in donations from the Ice Bucket Challenge campaign, and the number is still climbing.
Dave Green, VP of Human Resources was recently challenged by Renfro Canada to participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and he accepted with a cold ice splash! Please see his video below.
