ALS Ice Bucket Challenged Accepted

Last week the Berklee City Music National office was challenged in the Strike Out ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by our colleagues in the Berklee City Music Boston office.  Challenge accepted!

This a great cause that has raised over $94 million since July 29 and is creating awareness about amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease that is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement.

As part of our challenge, we challenged our friends at Little Kids Rock, Amp Up NYC, and the John Lennon Education Tour Bus.

In addition to having a lot of fun, as you will see in our video, everyone who did the Ice Bucket Challenge has donated to the cause.  Please show your support for this great cause and others like it that effect so many throughout the world.
