Stepping Up To The (Icy) Plate
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has made its way to Silicon Valley.
Over the past few weeks, some of the biggest names in technology have joined the fight against ALS -- also known as Lou Gehrig's disease – via the now-viral Ice Bucket Challenge. The way it works is somebody is challenged to either donate $100 to ALS research or dump a bucket of ice water on their head within 24 hours (although, in a lot of cases, folks are doing both). After completing the challenge, the ALS supporter then nominates others to do the same.
So far, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has helped raise more than $50 million in donations. Here are 10 high-tech executives who've helped make that happen.
