Why The #ALSIceBucketChallenge is More than Ice

By now everyone knows someone who has done the ice bucket challenge for ALS, but do you know the meaning behind it? I have to admit, last year when it was floating around online we did some research. Now, in 2014, it has raised more money than it has to date.

Yes, it’s fun to challenge our friends and family but the ALS ice bucket challenge is more than ice and water. There is a real disease others are fighting in silence because they cannot speak about what is happening to them. Family members are praying for answers while we continue to challenge others to donate or become soaking wet.

We challenge everyone to educate yourself about why it is called a challenge as we raise money to find a cure for those with ALS.
