The Ice Bucket Challenge was created by the ALS Association in order to raise awareness and support for ALS, which stands for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
As of today, $100 million dollars has been raised by the ALS Association, this is 3,500% more than they raised this time last year according to Forbes.
These funds will go towards assisting people and their families who have been affected by this disease. Additionally, the ALS Association works to create public policy that responds to helping people with ALS.
We at Mason-McDuffie Mortgage raised almost $1,200 for ALS, and members of the executive staff agreed to take part in the challenge.
