With the Ice Bucket Challenge spreading across the globe, the inevitable has happened; Australian footballers and administrators have been nominated.

The challenge, as you would expect, has been accepted, sometimes gleefully, other times with trepidation.

For those of you who are unaware (really?), the Ice Bucket Challenge started in the United States as a way to raise awareness and funds for the devastating Motor Neurone Disease (referred to as ALS in the US).

MND is a progressive disease that attacks the nerves in the brain and spinal cord of the sufferer. The result is it affects how they walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe. There is currently no cure for MND.

The rules of the Ice Bucket Challenge are simple; perform the challenge, nominate 3 others to do the Challenge within 24 hours, donate $100 to the Charity: MND Australia Fundraising website

The Ice Bucket Challenge has raised over $31 million dollars worldwide with the video below demonstrating how important the campaign is for those diagnosed with MND.

Challenge accepted!
