David Kurt McClain has had ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) for over 12 years, but despite being completely immobilized by this horrible disease, David has maintained a positive attitude which he says is due to his faith and his personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
His son Ben says he continues to encourage and inspire hundreds of people each and every day with his positive outlook on life and kind spirit, so the next logical step was to encourage hundreds of thousands by taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and show the world how much this viral campaign is doing to raise awareness of the disease and those who suffer from it.

This is the video everyone needs to see in the midst of this Ice Bucket Challenge trend. It clearly shows the real reason behind it all, to spread awareness for ALS, as well as showing what it’s like living with it.
