Microsoft's UK office latest to take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Microsoft's office in the United Kingdom has joined the many, many people and groups who have undertaken the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness and money to help find a cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (known as motor neurone disease in the UK).

The video shows 20 Microsoft employees, including Anand Krishnan, the UK leader for the company's App Platform, braving the cold as they collectively dump ice water from their individual buckets. All of the people in the video donated money to the Motor Neurone Disease Association. Krishnan also challenged Microsoft's overall UK leader, Michel Van der Bel, to do the same, along with the UK offices of Facebook and Google.

Microsoft UK joins current Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and former CEOs Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer to take up the ice bucket challenge.
