We put our own spin on the ice bucket challenge today at lunch. Join the cause and support ALS research with your own ice bucket video! Those tagged have to either create their own video or donate to ALS research. You have 24 hours! "Just what is ALS? Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed." --via The ALS Association
