With news breaking earlier today that there has been a potential breakthrough in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) research and money raised from the “Ice Bucket Challenge” being given credit for funding the research, I thought it would be good to remind everyone just how successful and far-reaching the campaign was.
Here are the more interesting stats I was able to dig up on the ground-breaking 2014 social media campaign. Pete Frates and Corey Griffin can be very proud of the amazing courage, leadership and persistence they lent to this great cause.
Please note that some of these ALS Ice Bucket Challenge statistics are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not necessarily official organizational tallies. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.
