My Ice Bucket Challenge - I Challenge You!

It finally happened…I was tagged to take the Ice Bucket Challenge. ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is a neurodegenerative disease that results in rapidly progressive weakness due to muscle atrophy. It’s devastating. Most of us know about ALS because of people like Stephen Hawking or Lou Gehrig, but ALS hit me in a very personal way this year when I learned that a friend and mentor was diagnosed. For my friend, and for everyone else impacted by ALS, I’m proud to take the Ice Bucket Challenge and more importantly, donate money to the ALS Association.

Part of the fun of this challenge is that you get to invite a few friends to help you raise money and awareness for this cause. To that end, I’m challenging the entire Mac Power Users community, including specifically calling out my podcasting partner David Sparks, to take the challenge with me. You can post your own Ice Bucket challenge videos to our Google+ page to share and inspire others. I’m also calling out my friends in the Mac Podcasting community in the hopes that they will inspire (and challenge) their listeners to participate as well.

You’ve been challenged…
