Dovercourt takes on the #IceBucketChallenge for ALS!

This morning (Fri. Aug. 22) at our Camp's morning giddy up, Dovercourt camp staff and campers did a mass Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS.

Aside from all that chilly good fun, the most important thing is to increase awareness about ALS, a devastating disease with no known cause, cure, or effective treatment, and to raise funds for research and treatment.

Ice Bucket Challenge videos are rampant on social media these days, and while naysayers may doubt the movement's effectiveness, here's what Forbes magazine had to say about it.

We have a donation bucket at our camp sign in and sign out for kids, parents & staff to make donations. If you prefer to make a donation online, you can sponsor Dovercourt's fundraising efforts on our page on the ALS.ca website.
