Orange Beach, Alabama (PRWEB) August 25, 2014

Columbia Southern University dares its students and alumni to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to benefit the national charity and raise awareness.

“We are challenging CSU students and alumni to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge,” said CSU President Robert Mayes. “CSU will match the $10 donation of the first 200 videos shared on our Facebook page up to $2,000 to the ALS Association to aid in their fight of this deadly disease.” His acceptance and other members of the CSU President’s Council of the Ice Bucket Challenge can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/2uHE_seJOH4.

Those taking the challenge should include #CSU14ALSicebucketchallenge in their submission to the CSU Facebook page, facebook.com/columbisouthern, as they post a link to their video.

ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Contributions from the Ice Bucket Challenge will further the ALS Association’s mission to find a cure for ALS while funding the highest quality of care for people living with the disease.

With only about half of the general public knowledgeable about amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, the Ice Bucket Challenge is making a profound difference. Since July 29, the association has welcomed more than 70,000 new donors to the cause.

CSU offers online associate, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in various fields including criminal justice, fire administration, occupational safety and health, and business administration. If you would like learn more about CSU, please visit http://www.ColumbiaSouthern.edu.
