The ALS Ice Bucket challenge has gone viral. And we have rounded up the sexiest challenges thus far. Peep the shirtless ice bucket challenges inside….
The ALS Ice bucket challenge is sweeping the nation. And many YBF celebs have taken on the challenge.
The challenge calls for one (who has been called out by another challenger) to pour a bucket of ice water over their head in support of the ALS association. The rules: You endure a bucket full of ice water poured over your head or donate money to the ALS Association. Many celebs have taken on the challenge and will also donate money to the cause.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease,” is a disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement.
According to the ALS Association’s website,
Between July 29 and today, August 12, The ALS Association and its 38 chapters have received an astonishing $4 million in donations compared to $1.12 million during the same time period last year.
"We have never seen anything like this in the history of the disease,” said Barbara Newhouse, President and CEO of The ALS Association. “We couldn’t be more thrilled with the level of compassion, generosity and sense of humor that people are exhibiting as they take part in this impactful viral initiative."
Team USA (men’s national basketball team) were up for the challenge. And they stripped their shirts to get soaked for the challenge. Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry posted Team USA’s ALS challenge with the caption, “Team USA #alsicebucketchallenge... We all were challenged by somebody so we did it together. @sydelcurry and Wes Matthews challenged me. We nominate Barack Obama, Adam Silver, and Chicago's own @Oprah”
