What is the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge?

Posted by Blaze Shadowhorn on August 17, 2014 at 4:00 PM

 Hello there wonderful people,


Tis I, Blaze Shadowhorn and I am here to talk to you about something that has hit the nation by storm. Over the past few weeks, people all around the United States and Abroad have taken a bucket filled with very cold water and ice and dumped it on their heads. You may wonder why they are doing this and I am here to explain that to you.

 

Have you ever heard of Lou Gehrig's disease? Well that is another name for the disease ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). ALS is a disease that causes a slow progression of paralysis throughout the body. At the moment it is incurable. Many people nationwide have decided to take action by participating in the so called ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. When doing the challenge, you first must record it in order to prove you did it. Second you must take a bucket of cold water and dump ice into it. Then you nominate 3 people who now have 24 hours after seeing your video to go and complete the Ice Bucket Challenge or else they must donate $100 to the ALS fund. Some people do the easy way and just dump it on them, while people such as Bill Gates and Paul Bissonnette go all out with this. Most people after completing the challenge donate $10 anyways because it is for a good cause and why not do your part to raise awareness?

 

I have been challenged by 3 people so far and am making my video later on today. I will be donating $10 and would like to challenge all of you to take part in this and raise awareness in your communities. Although there is no cure yet, hopefully one day after raising awareness along with money, a cure will be found to put a stop to this horrid disease. Go outside, get a bucket of water and ice, and go nominate others to take part in this amazing cause.

 

I hope you have all had an amazing few weeks and I will see you next Sunday for my other post this month. Sorry they have been so spread out but that is because my laptop crashed and so I had to wait until I was back in the states to get a new one.


See you in the Spiral!

-Blaze
