Tuesday, an uproar of participants completing the ALS challenge can be seen across many different mediums. The New England Patriots completed the challenge after practice on Tuesday and owner, Robert Kraft, came out and challenged the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, and the New York Jets to take and complete the ALS challenge.
ALS is Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
The ALS challenge consists of taking a bucket of ice water and dumping it on your head. After completing the plunge per se, you will then challenge others to complete the task or make a donation, or both. This all has to be recorded via video.
As a separate challenge, Bills offensive lineman Eric Wood, Erik Pears and Cordy Glenn completed the challenge that was set forth by assistant strength and conditioning coach Dan Liburd. After the three lineman completed their challenge, they challenged Pat Morris, offensive line coach for the Bills.
