BJ Penn Completes The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Former UFC champ, BJ ‘The Prodigy’ Penn is the latest UFC fighter to complete the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Penn nominates RVCA Founder Pat Tenore, Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie, BJPenn.com’s Pedro Carrasco and UFC GYM BJ PENN’s Scott Junk.

The ALS ice bucket challenge is for ALS awareness.

Here’s more:

About ALS: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

UPDATE:

Upon reading the fan comments, BJ opted to make a second video with more ice for ALS.
