How does the ALC Ice Bucket Challenge help ALS Patients?

-

Green Bay, Wis(WFRV)- A local man diagnosed with ALS is doing his part to fight the disease the same way many of us have- by doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

All the funds raised go to the ALS Association and so far, the ALS Association has received $15.6 million dollars in donations compared to $1.8 million during the same period last year.

Ted Haakonson joined Local 5 News to talk about how the challenge actually works, where the money goes, and how it directly affects people like him.
