The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge – KTG Style

My KTG family isn’t just all about food, travel and having a good time, you know. I love this rowdy foodie bunch because we try to find ways to be part of advocacies that we truly believe in.

Just as we have shown our support to victims of Typhoon Yolanda and documented our trip to Iloilo late last year, we have come together once again to participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to show our support on the fight against ALS.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)—also referred to as motor neurone disorder (MND), Charcot disorder, and, in the United States, Lou Gehrig’s disease—is a neurodegenerative disease with various causes. It is characterised by muscle spasticity, rapidly progressive weakness due to muscle atrophy, and difficulty in speaking (dysarthria), swallowing (dysphagia), and breathing (dyspnea). ALS is the most common of the five motor neuron diseases. One of the famous victims of this disorder is Stephen Hawking.

Our ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video

It was the perfect time to do our ALS Ice Bucket Challenge since most of us were together for a quick Bohol getaway at “The Bellevue Resort” just this weekend. And so, with the beautiful blue waters of Bohol as our backdrop, we immediately got to work and recorded the challenge.

Watch our video below as some of the KTG boys (including me!) participate in the viral campaign known as the “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge”.

The KTG boys who participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge are the following: Spanky Enriquez, Richard Co, Richie Zamora, me, Ralph Dreyfus (my son/honorary member of KTG… Hehehe) and Jeff Go.

We dare you to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge yourselves and dare others to do the same. You don’t even have to wait till you get nominated in order to join in. Encourage friends and family to join you as well. Together, let’s help fight ALS.

Please donate whatever you can to ALSA.org and ALS.net.
