Houston, Texas, September 2nd, 2014 – Paramount Transportation Systems, is a leading provider of global transportation services.
From neighborhood driveways and city streets to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, people everywhere can be seen dumping buckets of ice water on their heads to raise awareness and funds to fight ALS. ALS is a disease of the parts of the nervous system that control voluntary muscle movement. In ALS, motor neurons (nerve cells that control muscle cells) are gradually lost. As these motor neurons are lost, the muscles they control become weak and then nonfunctional. In the United States, ALS also is called Lou Gehrig’s disease, named after the Yankees baseball player who died of it in 1941.
Children, adults, celebrities and our very own Brian Stephenson, Director of Business Development at PTS Houston, alike are joining the social media phenomenon to fight back against a disease that currently has no treatments or cures.
