PROTEUS' Senior Leadership Team Takes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Proud Supporters of the ALS Association since 2007, this week PROTEUS' Senior Leadership Team rallied in support of the cause by taking on the Ice Bucket Challenge.

According to the ALS Association website, over $88 million has been raised through ice bucket challenges thus far this year to help discover a cure for this terrible disease. ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Eventually, people with ALS lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which often leads to total paralysis and death within two to five years of diagnosis. There is no cure and only one drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that modestly extends survival.
