Thrill of the chill, Elon takes on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

As summer comes to a close, one of the biggest trends of the season, the "Ice Bucket Challenge," continues to go viral across social media outlets. The goal served to raise awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrig's disease. According to Facebook, more than 2.5 million "Ice Bucket Challenge" videos have been posted on the social media site, in addition to more than 28 million similar posts. Elon junior Carrie Hartsfield lost her aunt, Joan Gluck, to ALS in 2003 and recalls her aunt's everyday struggles as she battled the illness. "It got to the point that she was standing in line and someone cut in front of her, but she couldn't even pick up her feet to move," Hartsfield said. Several years after Gluck's passing, Hartsfield conducted research on Lou Gehrig's disease as part of a high school project where she learned more about this particular disease. "I got the jist of it when I was eight, but I really didn't understand the biology behind it and how it was contracted," Hartsfield said.
