Yup! You read it right! The KTG (that’s the name of our foodie group) joined this incredibly viral movement known as the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! Yes, the challenge may seem fun and all, but this sweeping campaign is all for the continuous fight against ALS.

As a matter of fact, our group has been participating in relief missions and meaningful campaigns every so often to help those affected by past and present calamities. Just last December, some of us went to Sara and Carles in Iloilo to give relief and to help out in our own little way. So, doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to support a wonderful and meaningful cause just came naturally.

Last weekend, some of the KTG members were invited by The Bellevue Resort – Bohol to experience their wonderful establishment and to spend an amazing #BOHOLiday with our respective families.

Wondering why the “ice bucket”?
Dousing one’s body with ice cold water is said to be similar to the numbing effect of ALS.

But you know, you can just simply donate to als.net or asla.org to help fight this terrible disease.

So, are you up for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge as well?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) — also referred to as motor neurone disorder (MND), Charcot disorder, and, in the United States, Lou Gehrig’s disease—is a neurodegenerative disease with various causes. It is characterised by muscle spasticity, rapidly progressive weakness due to muscle atrophy, and difficulty in speaking (dysarthria), swallowing (dysphagia), and breathing (dyspnea). ALS is the most common of the five motor neuron diseases. One of the famous victims of this disorder is Stephen Hawking.
