More Ice Bucket Challenge

ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease) is a progressive neuromuscular disease in which nerve cells die and leave voluntary muscles paralyzed. Every day two or three Canadians die of the disease.

My daughter Karen issued the challenge to me on Friday. Our grandkids nominated my other half, Don, to take up the challenge too, so we both did and we'll be donating a total of $100 to the cause.

Before we tip the bucket we are supposed to nominate somebody else to follow suit, but I would rather just post it here and on Facebook and mail it to a few people I know. If you see this video, please consider joining the fun and also making a donation.

Donate here

ALS is getting a lot of attention since this Ice Bucket frenzy started and they are also raking in an unprecedented amount of charitable donations. Let's hope that they use all this money responsibly and let's hope that, through all of our efforts and fun, we help to improve the lives of people living with ALS.
