Welcome to the official landing page celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Ice Bucket Challenge, a global phenomenon that quickly became the largest social media movement in history. Since it began, millions of people have uploaded videos of themselves to social media dumping buckets of ice water over their heads and challenging friends, family, and even celebrities to do the same. The viral sensation has raised hundreds of millions of dollars, raising awareness and sparking hope in the fight against ALS/MND.
What is the Ice Bucket Challenge?
In 2014, professional golfer Chris Kennedy posted a video dumping the first bucket on behalf of his cousin Anthony Senerchia Jr., who was living with ALS/MND. He then challenged his network to either do the same or make a donation to fight ALS/MND. Pete Frates and Pat Quinn, both people living with ALS/MND, soon took up the challenge, and helped Senerchia co-found the Ice Bucket Challenge that we know today.
Through this simple yet powerful act, millions of people have come together to raise awareness and funds for ALS/MND research, care, and support.
