ALS is a progressive neuro-degenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord, and is considered to be a fatal disease.
Last week, Lim donated US$100 (RM317.37) to the ALS Association, and nominated China Press chief editor Teoh Yang Khoon and Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz to take the challenge. Both took up the challenge.
At Lim’s event, seven members of the Quads Functional Training, an outdoor physical training group, also had cold water poured on them.
According to trainer Cheah Boon Chong, 30, the effort netted RM1,500 for the ALS Association.
Lim had earlier launched the Let’s Walk, Run and Zumba for Charity 2014, and said zumba would be allowed in Penang as it as a “healthy and interesting” dance.
The charity event is organised by Eden Handicap Service Centre Bhd to raise funds for a wheelchair accessible vehicle.
