The world has embraced the ALS ice bucket challenge! Literally everyone is doing it!! What a fantastic way to raise funding & awareness for such a cruel disease. The sooner medicine can advance to help beat this the better. Here's a clip i found via CTV News.
"For months now, several groups, from athletes to Christian groups have been pouring ice-cold water over themselves and filming it, sometimes simply for fun. The challenge grew in popularity this spring among both pro and amateur golfers, but it wasn't until former pro golfer Greg Norman challenged NBC anchor Matt Lauer to the challenge that it hit the mainstream.
Back then, the idea was to either take the bucket of cold water on your head or donate $100 to a charity of your choice. A minor-league golfer in Florida named Chris Kennedy may have been the first to dedicate his ice bucket challenge to ALS research, but ALS Canada says it was really Pete Frates, a former Boston College baseball player who has ALS himself, who really got the challenge going back on July 29.
Since that date, millions of videos of ice bucket challenges have been uploaded to Facebook and Twitter in the last month, growing exponentially in popularity in recent weeks, and creating what many could argue has been one of the most viral fundraising campaigns in years."
