ALS Societies across Canada announce the fund allocation from the Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS Society of Alberta is excited to announce that the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has raised $16.2 million in Canada due to the generosity of more than 260,000 Canadians. This record-breaking success has allowed for ALS to become a commonly known disease, and has given hope to the ALS community. Funds will be allocated toward the national ALS research program, and to client support services within each province.

ALS Societies will invest $10 million in ALS research and $6 million in programs that deliver critical support to Canadians living with ALS.
