Carolina Hurricanes Participate in ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (Videos)

Members of the Carolina Hurricanes roster and front office have participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to support awareness and treatment for ALS.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS, is a disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. The illness has also been nicknamed the Lou Gehrig’s disease.

So far, Patrick Dwyer, Jordan Staal, and Ron Francis have all participated in the ice bucket challenge and posted the videos on Instagram.

If you want to participate, all you have to do is take a video of you or someone else pouring a bucket of ice water on their head then post the video on Instagram with #IceBucketChallenge.

Ron Francis:

Expect more players, coaches and management to participate in the ice bucket challenge. It’s for a great cause, so the more people who participate in the ice bucket challenge, the better.

The Carolina Hurricanes will kick off the 2014-2015 NHL preseason on Sunday, September 21 when they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets at the PNC Arena.

The Carolina Hurricanes will play their first NHL regular season games on Friday, October 10 at the PNC Arena against the New York Islanders.
