ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Subscribe to WRRV on

According to the ALS Association, ALS is a disease that affects more than 30,000 Americans, and more than 15 new cases are reported every day. It can start out as muscle weakness or stiffness and leads to paralysis of the limbs and trunk and affects speech, swallowing and breathing. There is no cure for ALS, aka Lou Gehrig’s disease so much research needs to be done. That’s where the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge comes in:

Beverly, Mass., resident Pete Frates, started the “Ice Bucket Challenge” with his family on the social sites Facebook and Twitter.  Frates, 29, has lived with ALS since 2012, and he has worked with The ALS Association’s Massachusetts Chapter.  A former Division 1 college athlete with Boston College Baseball, Frates tirelessly spreads awareness of Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

My father challenged me last night so I had to answer the call. I’ve challenged CJ from 94.3/97.3 The Wolf, Meat Sandwich from 101.5 WPDH and any Phi Kaps from Marist College Delta Iota Chapter that haven’t completed the task. You have 24 hours or must donate to ALS research.
