Steve Gleason Takes the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’ [VIDEO]
We’ve all seen the internet go crazy this week with videos of the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’, a fundraiser for ALS., Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.The basic premise is daring a person to dump a bucket of ice water over their head within the next 24 hours, or else donate money toward fighting ALS. Once they have completed the challenge, they’re also supposed to ask several other people — usually three — to participate. Some of the celebrities who have already participated have included Justin Timberlake, Mark Zuckerberg, and the New Orleans Saints’ own Steve Gleason, who is suffering from the disease himself.
My favorite is Steve Gleason, who not only does the Ice Bucket Challenge, but he does it naked! Way to geaux, Steve! So far, over $15 million dollars has been raised, and if you’re not up to the challenge, or even if you are, you can donate here.
