We know, you’re probably sick of seeing so many #ASLIceBucketChallenge videos on Facebook and around the web.
But did you know that the grassroots fundraising campaign has already raised over $40 million for ALS medical research?
Anthony Carbajal’s story inspired us to join the movement. Here’s why you should, too.
Here’s Anthony’s story in his own words. We promise, it’s worth the watch and the tears.
In his video, Anthony explains that his grandmother passed away from ALS. Now his mother is suffering from the incurable disease and just a few months ago, the 26-year-old found out he has it too. Now he’s challenging all of us to continue to raise awareness for a disease that needs more medical research and funding to help find a cure.
And it’s not just about the buzz either. Thanks to this challenge, more than $41 million has been raised since the end of July for ALS research.
Anthony’s brave spirit is absolutely contagious and inspiring. Please continue to raise awareness and funds for ALS medical research. If you’re interested in donating, visit www.ALS.net.
