My ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

As of Sunday, August 17, 2014, The ALS Association has received $13.3 million in donations compared to $1.7 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 17). These donations have come from existing donors and 259,505 new donors to The Association.

The ALS Association’s mission includes providing care services to assist people with ALS and their families through a network of chapters working in communities across the nation and a global research program focused on the discovery of treatments and eventually a cure for the disease. In addition, The Association’s public policy efforts empower people to advance public policies in our nation’s Capital that respond to the needs of people with ALS.

NASCAR Race Mom was challenged to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by my ex-friend Richard. . . . 

So here I am to nominate my four soon-to-be ex-friends to accept this worthwhile challenge. In keeping with my NASCAR Mommy blog themes, my four nominees are Jen Kwasniewski (Dylan's Mom); Heidi Pursley (Taylor and Tyler’s Mom), my buddy Cindi Peace (Kelsy’s Mom) and I would not want to forget our dads so I also nominate Butch Gilliland (Amanda, Lisa, & David’s Dad)
