True Blood’s Alcide Helps Raise Awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s Disease):
ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease that falls into the motor neurone disease family.
At the moment all the rage is to either donate to the ALS Association or pour a bucket of ice cold water on your head. Many people are actually choosing to both! Along with the $4 million raised between the 29th of July and the 12th of August 2014, people are now much more aware of this devastating condition.
Recently, Joe Manganiello (who played werewolf Alcide Herveaux on HBO’s True Blood) was nominated by Mario Lopez to do the ice bucket challenge. You can watch the video below to see how he went – and what his new girlfriend Sofia Vergara (Modern Family) thought of it!
