I was nominated by a colleague of mine in Hong Kong to do the ‘ALS Ice Bucket Challenge‘. As much as this challenge is fun and set up for a bit of a laugh, let’s not forget the real reason behind it. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis also known as Lou Gehrig‘s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Until now, a lot of us still knew nothing about it, but in the past week, the ice bucket challenge has literally gone viral to raise awareness for the disease and to also encourage participants to donate and also nominate three others for take on the challenge. For more information and to donate, make sure you visit the official website here.
