Talk: The Ice Bucket Challenge

Pat Quinn is the co-founder of the "Ice Bucket Challenge". He’s a fighter living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and the main reason why the ALS Association raised over $100M in a single month to fight this terrible disease. Diagnosed with ALS in March 2013, Pat's life dramatically changed from being a star athlete to not being able to tie his own sneakers. While some might let the disease win, Pat has been an inspiration to millions by refusing to give up the fight until a cure is found.
