Why I’m taking the #ALSIceBucketChallenge this August

Sarah Caldwell was 16 years old when she lost her father to ALS and knows all too well the difference YOU can make in the fight against ALS. That’s why Sarah is asking you to join her and participate in the 2015 ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
Every August until a cure!

We have many suggestions for you to be #DroughtConscious
when taking this year's #ALSIceBucketChallenge! Be creative and think outside of the ice bucket!

A Take the challenge in an existing body of water (lake or ocean, for example).
B Fill your bucket with an alternate substance like spare buttons, kale, or good karma.
C Bypass the first few steps and make a gift to the Golden West Chapter!

It is only together that we will defeat ALS!
