Every August Until a Cure: 2017 Ice Bucket Challenge Wrap-up

As we look back on another successful August commemorating the Ice Bucket Challenge, we want to thank everyone who has participated over the past 3 years! Since 2014, the Ice Bucket Challenge has left an enduring legacy which has generated millions in funds worldwide for ALS/MND research and care. Together we are united in the worldwide fight against ALS/MND.
