LONGVIEW (KYTX) - An entire country club in Longview took part in the ALS ice bucket challenge yesterday. The Oak Forest Country Club held a fundraiser and awareness campaign for one of their own. The members filled dozens of buckets with ice and dumped it on themselves. Mark Eitelmal has suffered from ALS for years and is glad to see the popularity of the ice bucket challenge explode.
"It has been a diseas that has been left behind through the years. It's not necessarily been avoided, but it hasn't been talked about much." -Mark Eitelman, ALS Sufferer
The fundraiser raised more than $1,800 for ALS.
