Lee Pace does the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Aug 23 • by Ursa • No CommentsLee News

Lee accepted Sally Twellman’s challenge to raise money and awarness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ALS affects the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons degenerate and die which makes it increasingly difficult to move muscles. There is currently no cure. The viral sensation was launched around a month ago by Pete Frates, 29, a former Boston College baseball captain. He has lived with ALS since 2012.

When challenged by a friend or colleague, you have 24 hours to either donate $100 to the cause or post a video showing yourself dumping a bucket of ice water on your head to get out of donating. Then, in turn, you challenge three others. As of Saturday, August 23, The ALS Association has received $62.5 million in donations compared to $2.4 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 23).
