Announcement About Funds Given Through The Ice Bucket Challenge To Be Made Early November 2014

Representatives of the ALS Societies across Canada met in Toronto this past weekend to give thoughtful consideration regarding the allocation of the funds raised through the Ice Bucket Challenges. As beneficiaries of these donations, we accept this task as a huge responsibility and are mindful of what this means towards fostering research and supporting families living with ALS. All ALS Society Boards will now be asked to ratify the decisions made in Toronto and an announcement of the final outcome will be made in early November 2014.
