Reggie and Nintendo of America Take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

What is Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis? It’s a horrible neurological disease that attacks the cells that control voluntary muscle movement. ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Over the past few months, people all across the country have been participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, where people dump a bucket of ice water on themselves, donate some money to ALS research, and post their video online to raise awareness. Nintendo of America President and COO, Reggie Fils-Aime, was challenged by many, and he has accepted. He even issued the challenge to the rest of the NOA team. Here is their video.
