The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was started by Pete Frates and Pat Quinn in the summer of 2014. As people took part and challenged others to do the same, the movement spread exponentially, growing into a worldwide event. More than 17 million people took part, and $115 million was donated to the ALS Association to combat the disease.
Nationally, the Ice Bucket Challenge made a huge impact on research, and we’ve been able to fund groundbreaking projects thanks to you:
