Several of Rentec Direct Employees took the viral ALS ice bucket challenge and others gracefully bowed out of the challenge and decided to just donate to the cause. Rentec Direct Property Management Software has committed to matching its employees donations dollar for dollar.

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) August 29, 2014

Rentec Direct, leading Property Management Software and Tenant Screening company has challenged its employees to the viral social media ALS ice bucket challenge. Several of the employees have accepted the challenge on August 26, 2014. Links to Rentec Directs employees videos can be found at the bottom of this press release.

In addition to raising money for a great cause the ALS ice bucket challenge has increased awareness about this lethal disease. ALS was first found in 1869 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it wasnt until 1939 that Lou Gehrig brought national and international attention to the disease. Ending the career of one of the most beloved baseball players of all time, the disease is still most closely associated with his name. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

When asked why Rentec Direct wanted to get involved with the ALS ice bucket challenge and agreed to match their employees donations? Nathan Miller, President of Rentec Direct replied, ALS effects approximately 30,000 people in the United States at any given time and research for a cure to this disease is certainly a worthy cause."
