[VIDEOS] Best Ice Bucket Challenges From Athletes To Help “Stomp Out ALS”
Viral Videos of professional sports athletes have been going crazy the past few weeks as they dump ice buckets on their head in support to help Stomp Out ALS in their communities.
Using the #ALSIceBucketChallenge on social media, your favorite athletes keep challenging themselves to dump chilling water on their head in hopes to bring more awareness to Lou Gehrig’s Disease & donate money to the non profit organization. ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the spinal cord and brain.
