Ice Bucket Challenge: Charitable Gesture Or Tacky Stunt?

August 7, 2014

The "Ice Bucket Challenge," a dare to pour ice water over your head or donate money to find a cure for ALS, has gone viral, and it all started with a local family.

Lynn Aaronson is the executive director of the Massachusetts Chapter of the ALS Association.
