The Ice Bucket Challenge and How it Helped!

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge took the internet by storm in the summer of 2014 and was soon one of the most popular viral trends around the world! With participation by those fighting ALS, those affected by the disease, as well as celebrities, athletes and even world leaders, the Ice Bucket Challenge did more for raising awareness about ALS than any prior campaign. However, many skeptics asked if the activity actually helped the fight against ALS, and with the help of some very encouraging statistics, we can answer that question with an emphatic, YES!
