GVH Conquered the, "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge"

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or also known as, “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a disease that attacks the nerve cells in a person’s brain and spinal cord.  This neurodegenerative disease creates a degeneration of motor neurons leading to death in many who are diagnosed with ALS.  Recently, more people are hearing about this disease because of the new social phenomenon called the, “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.”   The goal of the challenge is to make more people aware of what ALS is, and to raise money to help fight the cause. 

GVH was nominated to take the, “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge” and for every employee that participated, the hospital donated $1.00 to ALS.  We had a great turn out, and we were proud to stand behind such a good cause to raise awareness.  Check out our photos and video on our Facebook page to see who we nominated to take the challenge next.
