BIRMINGHAM, AL- The Birmingham City Council is committed to making differences in the Greater Birmingham and surrounding communities.

The Ice Bucket challenge for the ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) Association is making waves across the nation, and the Southeast would not be complete without the City of Birmingham’s bold elected officials making their mark by preparing to get dunked with tons of heat remedy, ice cold water.

What:  Birmingham City Councilors to Accept the ALS Challenge

When:  Today, August 26, 2014 at 5 p.m.

Where:  City Hall (Short & 20th Street)
