Rand Bos started this petition to ALSA and

Last year the ALS Association only spent 27% of what it raised on research.  The difference between 27% and, say, 75%, will be tens of millions of dollars to devote towards research....or not.  Typically, the ALS Association spends more money on publicity and awareness than on research.  They should be able to spend a lot less now, given all the publicity and awareness the challenge has generated.  While they spend money on various quite worthwhile programs, it is important to honor the spirit of the challenge and the intent of the many donors - which is to fight ALS by funding research for treatments and a cure.
