Five years ago, the ALS Community was given an amazing gift. The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge went viral, forever changing the landscape of ALS awareness and research in Canada. In Alberta, a remarkable $2.8 million was raised, with $2 million allocated to national ALS research, and $800,000 remaining in the province for client support services.
The ALS Society of Alberta looks forward to continuing the momentum and awareness sparked by the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. In honour of the five-year anniversary, the Society has released a video celebrating the many supporters that took part in the challenge in Alberta. Watch below.
