I should have known that it would soon make it's way to me. I was nominated by Tai from our sister station Planet Radio 105.1 for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and I ACCEPTED! Yes, I was very VERY nervous.

For those who are not aware of what ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease is, according to ALS.net, it is a motor neuron disease that attacks cells in the brain and spinal cord needed to keep our muscles moving. Those with the disease live for about 2-5 years after their first signs.

This ice bucket challenge was started in support of ALS research. I took the challenge and nominated Drake Herbert, Kaylin King, and JC from our sister station 99.9 KTDY. I also donated to the Team Gleason foundation. The idea is to take the challenge within 24 hours of nomination and donate whether or not you accomplish the task like I did.
