ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a disease that affects neurons in your brain and spinal cord. The disease causes muscle weakness and can cause death. The ALS Association has started an Ice Bucket Challenge, where people dunk buckets of ice water on themselves to raise awareness and money. For each bucket, you can nominate 3 people for the challenge. My nominations are Ansel Y., Boey T., Fedor B., Jackie Z., Brook X. and my aunt Ann. I was nominated by my mom and we have donated money to the charity. I hope this video spreads awareness and I hope that everyone that reads this post can donate money to the ALS Association. Even though this challenge has been criticized, I believe that it has had a profound effect, raising millions of dollars just in the time in has gone viral. So, here is my attempt at the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
To conclude, this challenge is VERY popular, and very high-profile celebrities have done it, maybe even your friends, teachers and parents have done it. ALS is very serious, and every dollar counts in helping conquer ALS.
