Ice Bucket Challenge could make a comeback


The ALS Association is asking people to get drenched once again, for a good cause.  

Starting August first, the association is hoping to restart the Ice Bucket Challenge.

Last summer, the challenge started online and quickly went viral. Millions of people poured icy water over themselves and others and donated money to help find a cure for ALS.

"It was a phenomenon," said Melanie Roach-Bekos, Wisconsin Chapter of the ALS Association. "ALS is a disease that has been ignored and under-funded for the last seventy-five years." 

The ALS Association raised $115 million last year from the Ice Bucket Challenge.
