The #ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!

I'm so excited that the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has gone viral! Team Gleason was one of the first beneficiaries of The Five Horizons Foundation.  I had a chance to meet Steve and his wife in New Orleans last year and they were nothing short of inspirational people.  It's great to see Pearl Jam getting involved in the challenges!  McCready challenged the whole band so I'll post their videos here as they become available.

Some great stats about how this challenge has affected fundraising and awareness:

From July 29 to August 13, the national office of The ALS Association received $5.5 million compared with $32,000 in donations during the same time period last year. Association-wide (which includes national and chapter revenue), the organization has received $7.6 million compared to $1.4 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 13). These donations have come from 145,918 new donors to The Association. Locally, the Northern Ohio Chapter has seen a 30% increase in support since July 29, compared with the same time period last year, most of which has arrived in the past week.

Please consider supporting Team Gleason by visiting their website and making a donation.  Click here.
