Why Do We Do The Als Ice Bucket Challenge
Who Started The Ice Bucket Challenge
The man who started the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is Chris Kennedy, a golfer in Sarasota, Florida. He was nominated by his friend, but the challenge did not have anything to do with ALS, it was just about dumping cold water on your head. Kennedy decided to select ALS because one of his relatives was suffering from that disease. And then it went world wide. Video after video of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
