Fighting ALS as a Worldwide Community

Fighting ALS as a Worldwide Community

Maybe you’ve seen the online phenomenon of the “Ice Bucket Challenge,” where participants pour ice water over themselves to raise awareness for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. ¬†At any given time, this progressive neurodegenerative disease affects 350,000 people worldwide, with 30,000 of those cases occurring in the US.

Whether you’ve done the challenge yourself, dared others to do it, or just watched your favorite football team, hardware store or local chamber of commerce dunk themselves, take some time to learn about the disease, who is affected, and how you can help.
