Blue Jackets players, coaches & staff participate in the #ALSIceBucketChallenge
Blue Jackets coaches, players and staff have accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for ALS research.

By now, you've most likely heard of the #ALSIceBucketChallenge.

The popular social media campaign has caught fire and has been widely successful in raising awareness and funds for ALS research. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known also as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

As of August 20, the ALS Association has reported over $31.5 million in donations to support ALS research as a result of the Ice Bucket Challenge.
