I am proud to say that I have participated in the ALS ice bucket challenge that swept the nation this past summer. Although it appears that people of all ages would rather dump a large bucket of ice water atop their heads than donate to a worthy cause, the ice bucket challenge has been a huge success! Not only has it brought an insane amount of awareness to the ALS community, but thanks to the challenge, the ALS Association has raised over $115 million in donations since July 29, 2014! Personally, I was nominated not once, but TWICE. It’s amazing to see an entire nation come together, especially the younger generations, in support of such a good cause. I’m just thankful to have been a part of it!
