A Personal Story About What the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is Really About

For the last few weeks, we’ve watched people develop dramatic or funny videos to support the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. We’ve seen kids, adults, celebrities, family members and more take an ice bath to support ALS research.

Our Gilroy, CA community has not only taken the challenge, but also delivers a special message from a resident whose son is battling Lou Gehrig’s disease. If you are only somewhat aware of the pain ALS causes patients and family members, this is a video you need to see. Remember, this Facebook phenomenon is not simply about humor – it’s about raising money to find a cure for this devastating affliction.

Thank you for sharing your touching story.
