You've probably been seeing lots of people throwing ice water in buckets over their heads across social media. Well, the reason behind this "Ice Bucket Challenge", is to raise awareness for the condition known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS. In Australia, we refer to this disease as Motor Neuron Disease or MND. MND sufferers experience impaired cognitive function. breathing difficulties and insomnia as part of the condition. To read more about MND head here. There is currently no cure and every day, 2 Aussie's are diagnosed with MND and sadly 2 die each day from MND. With the help of the Ice Bucket Challenge more and more funding can be directed to finding a cure.
I've made my donation to MND Australia and I invite you to do the same. You can also watch me get "dunked" with a very big esky filled with ice and sea water below!
