PETALING JAYA: The ALS ice bucket challenge has hit Malaysia’s Grand Prix riders, with Moto2 rider Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman the latest to take up the challenge.
Moto3 rider Zulfahmi Khairuddin started the ball rolling with a video post on his Instagram. Zulfahmi was doused by his father, Khairuddin Weji.
Zulfahmi then nominated Azlan and Sepang International Circuit (SIC) chief executive officer Datuk Razlan Razali to take up the challenge.
Azlan challenged Petronas Asia Road Racing (ARRC) SuperSports 600cc rider Mohd Zamri Baba.
The Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), is a neurodegenerative disease also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. It affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, in which the progressive degeneration of motor neurons will eventually lead to paralysis.
Football legend Mokhtar Dahari died due to ALS.
The ice bucket challenge works in two ways. Either you take up the challenge by being dumped with a bucket full of ice or donate money for the cause.
The ALS association in the United States have, until Aug 21, received US$41.8mil in donations. Celebrities who have taken the challenge include Oprah Winfrey, Robert Downey Jr and our own Youth and Sports Minster, Khairy Jamaluddin.
Ice buckets aside, the boys in the Moto3 and Moto2 world championships will continue their season after a week’s break at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone on Aug 31.
