FAIRFIELD — The ice bucket challenge to raise awareness and funds for ALS – Lou Gehrig’s Disease – is running rampant throughout the world.

What do you think of it? Have you donated to the ALS cause? Do you have someone close to you with ALS?

The ALS Association as of Monday stated in a press release that its donations have reached $79.7 million compared to $2.5 million last year at this time.

The Daily Republic would like to include your opinion of the challenge itself and your experiences with the challenge if you have participated. It’s for an upcoming Saturday Living feature. We would also like to know if ALS has touched your life in some way.

Please email your story or opinion to [email protected] with ALS in the subject line. Along with your story, you need to include your full name, city of residence and a contact phone number.

    Sarah Palin did the challenge and let out a shriek even worse than her speaking voice. George W did the challenge and suddenly had an awkward moment when he realized that he just reminded people of his career waterboarding people. Paul Ryan did the ice bucket challenge for ALS, and voted to cut funding to ALS.
