    This is no surprise. Associations like this are not run by volunteers.

    This. And that almost 80% is going to research, education for professionals and the public, as well as care for patients is a good thing. If anything, I'm impressed that their administration costs are so low. People need to stop hating on this challenge. Despite you having to scroll over a video and skip pressing play, it's doing a world of good.

    That pie chart looks good to me. I see that the majority of the money is going back to the cause. I have no problem donating to them again this year

    not seeing anything too out of this world.

    there are much worse out there when it comes to percentage of admin costs vs research

    I was nominated last night - it's an opportunity for my kids to dump ice water on me so I'll get it done tonight after my son's ball game.

    And still donate. If I didn't have kids, I would likely just donate. My daughter did the challenge yesterday as well.
