The Ice Bucket Challenge keeps on moving raising more and more money to fight ALS. According to the latest reports, the viral Ice Bucket Challenge for Project A.L.S. has raised over $15 million since July 29. In the same period of last year only $50,000 have been donated. The Ice Bucket Challenge has a huge impact that might even be the critical game changer for ALS research.
Project A.L.S. was founded in 1998 by Jenifer Estess, her sisters, and friends, and has become the new paradigm for brain disease research. Project A.L.S. identifies and funds the most promising, rational, and aggressive research strategies among collaborators at Harvard, Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Cornell, Memorial Sloan Kettering, New York University, and The Salk Institute, among others.
