Take the Ice Bucket Challenge!
Across the Country, millions are supporting the ALS Association by spreading the word about Lou Gehrig's Disease with their own Ice Bucket Challenge videos. To compete in the challenge, participants pour a bucket of water over their heads, or make a donation to an ALS Charity-or both. In the video, which is shared with the participants' social media, participants announce that they are raising awareness and money to support the fight against ALS. Anyone can challenge anyone; Nick Swisher, Ethel Kennedy, Barack Obama, Paul Bissonnette, Lebron James, Oprah Winfrey, Stephen Spielberg, and Bill Gates are the latest to join the fight! Support the ALS Association today! Download the Press Release.
