Many people may have thought it was dumb, but recording ourselves throwing an ice bucket over our heads was a great example of how together we can do something great! The #ALSicebucketchallege brought more than three million people to collaborate to find a cure to defeat ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). The cause to defeat ALS is not new for me since, in memory of my father, I’ve been participating in fundraising walks with my family for many years. My father, the strongest man I’ve ever known is also the person that inspires me to to bring hope to people living with ALS, and raise money for a cure.
Please join me at the walk and make your online donation! With your contribution, The ALS Association can sustain care services and continue to support research for a cure.
With the strongest woman I know, in memory of the strongest man I've ever known.
Together beyond the #ALSicebucketchallege: from a moment to A MOVEMENT!
Thank you Silvia Echeverria and Andrea Adum, Ecuadorian friends and activists 😀
