“But just then, for that fraction of time, it seems as though all things are possible. You can look across the limitations of your own life, and see that they are really nothing. In that moment when time stops, it is as though you know you could undertake any venture, complete it and come back to yourself, to find the world unchanged, and everything just as you left it a moment before. And it’s as though knowing that everything is possible, suddenly nothing is necessary.”
― Diana Gabaldon, Outlander

Widely considered Scotland’s most photographed site, Eilean Donan Castle perches on an island at the meeting of three lochs in western Scotland. The island’s first castle was an early 13th-century fortification against raiding Vikings, and it’s been sacked and rebuilt several times. The most recent facelift was completed in 1932.

The ice bucket challenge has swept North America. You pour ice water over your head and challenge 3 more people to do it within 24 hours. Mark Zuckerberg challenged Bill Gates. Justin Timberlake challenged Jimmy Fallon and the Tonight Show band. CEO’s, athletes and people like you are accepting the challenge to help strike out ALS. Support the patients and families living with ALS.

It is wonderful that so many people participate and make it personal. But, please, donate to fight ALS (Lou Gherig’s Disease). Put your money where your mouth is and challenge others to give to charity.

It is personal. Two members of my family died from ALS.

My mother could not lift a cup with an ice cube in it.

My aunt could not ask for one.

Please help to find a cure for this horrific disease.

The ALS Association is the only national non-profit organization fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease on every front. By leading the way in global research, providing assistance for people with ALS through a nationwide network of chapters, coordinating multidisciplinary care through Certified Treatment Centers of Excellence, and fostering government partnerships, The Association builds hope and enhances quality of life while aggressively searching for new treatments and a cure. For more information about The ALS Association, visit our website at http://www.alsa.org.
