ANNOUNCING Every Drop Adds Up

Pat Quinn is a co-founder of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. He was diagnosed with ALS in March 2013.

Last year, I accepted a Webby Award in New York City for co-founding the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Acceptance speeches are limited to just five words, so when I went on stage I said:

“Every August Until A Cure.”

Since then, this mantra has become a rallying cry of the ALS community. It’s been awesome to see the progress we’ve enabled since the Challenge soaked the world in August 2014.

But I’ll be honest with you: while a lot of money was infused into ALS over the last two years, we need to do more if we want to bring a treatment to market.


Help me establish every August as the month we take pause to make a difference in the fight against ALS.

Every contribution – no matter how large or seemingly small, whether a financial gift or a selfless act that brings awareness to ALS – adds up. You see…

Every Drop Adds Up.

Help finish what we started. Visit to see how The ALS Association has invested your donation and find out how you can make an impact again this August.

  1. My son lost the battle with ALS on January 1st, of this year. I write this with mixed emotions because the agony he experienced was like nothing I could ever described . It was like he was a prisoner in his own body that was deteriorating right before his eyes and no one could do anything to help him, his dignity was compromised by this disease. As his main caretakers we can’t get the experience out of hearts. I pray that something is discovered soon because no human should have to suffer as he (we) did. Those of us who are left behind are haunted with the agony and heartbreak that accompanies that dreadful disease. We pray for all who are battling it now and hope that an answer is forthcoming.
