Yesterday Adam Cogan nominated me to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, the idea of which is to raise awareness and funds for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

For those that don't know much about it, ALS is a degenerative nervous disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, and causes them to die.

It's a truly terrible disease, it's cause is still a mystery and there isn't a cure.

Please take a few minutes to read about this terrible illness.
Even better click the 'Donate' link on and contribute to researching better treatmentments, and maybe one-day a cure for this terrible disease.

I'm going to nominate a few people to take the challenge
Scott Allen @OdeToCode
Ivan Storck @ivanoats
David Burela @DavidBurela
