About The Ice Bucket Challenge
The Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS/MND was a phenomenal social media campaign that swept the world in 2014. It was initiated by Pat Quinn, a former athlete and Pete Frates, a former Boston College captain. Both men are living with motor neurone disease (MND) in the US. When Peter Frates posted his challenge online, the Ice Bucket Challenge quickly went viral, spreading to Australia in early August 2014 and sparking the involvement of over 60,000 Australians
About Motor Neurone Disease
Motor Neurone disease (MND) is the name given to a group of diseases in which the nerve cells - neurones - controlling the muscles that enable us to move around, speak, breathe and swallow, fail to work normally. With no nerves to activate them, muscles gradually weaken and waste. The patterns of weakness vary from person to person.
