KSAT anchors take Ice Bucket Challenge
SAN ANTONIO – The Ice Bucket Challenge continues to take social media by storm plus help raise money and awareness for ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
Videos of people dousing themselves with ice water is making the rounds on social media. People post the video on Facebook, Instagram or other social media sites, and then challenge friends to do the Ice Bucket Challenge within 24 hours or donate $100 to ALS. Many people have been doing both.
The Ice Bucket Challenge has inspired unprecedented giving to ALS. As of Sunday, Aug. 17, The ALS Association has received $13.3 million in donations compared to $1.7 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 17).
These donations have come from existing donors and nearly 260,000 new donors to The Association.
The KSAT anchors have been taking part in the challenge as well.
Meteorologists Adam Caskey and Katie Vossler have participated along with David Sears, KSAT producer Sean Talbot, plus the Sports Guys Greg Simmons and Larry Ramirez.
