Ice Bucket Challenge

Join us for the 10th Ice Bucket Challenge Anniversary

On Saturday August 3rd to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Ice Bucket Challenge, 9am-10am, at Salt River Fields Centerfield parking lot in Scottsdale.

Continuing the Legacy – 10th Anniversary

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is more than just a viral sensation; it’s a testament to the power of social media in driving real-world impact. It demonstrated how collective efforts can lead to substantial contributions to medical research and support for those affected by debilitating conditions.

The legacy of the Ice Bucket Challenge continues today in celebrating the 10th Anniversary on August 3rd, 2024. Every year, inspired by the original campaign, people around the world participate in various events and challenges to support ALS research and spread awareness.

Thanks to Anthony Senerchia, Pete Frates, and Pat Quinn who founded the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. ALS Arizona is participating this year to continue to raise awareness, celebrate the impact of this viral sensation, and continue to fund free programs for our Arizona patients and families.

The Impact

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge had an unprecedented impact:

  • Fundraising: The challenge raised over $220 million worldwide for ALS research and patient care. The ALS Association alone received $115 million, which significantly advanced scientific research and care for those living with ALS.
  • Awareness: The challenge brought ALS to the forefront of public consciousness, informing millions about the disease and its effects.
  • Research Breakthroughs: Funds from the challenge contributed to significant scientific advancements, including the discovery of new ALS genes and improved understanding of the disease's mechanisms.

Our goal for this event is to raise more awareness and raise some funds to support our ALS Arizona patients and families. All funds support our free programs and research.
