Former NBA star Yao Ming announced on Tuesday that he will take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to help raise money and improve awareness of the fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Yao is the latest celebrity to join the global phenomenon Nike Air Max 270 Kids Sale , which has spread to China and flooded social media for the past week.

Yao, who accepted the challenge from friends, will pour a bucket of ice water over himself on Saturday at the NBA Yao School.

The challenge requires that participators pour a bucket of ice water on themselves and then post a video of it on social media while nominating three other people to do the same.

People who fail to take the challenge will have to donate $100 to the ALS Association, which advocates finding treatments and a cure for the muscle-wasting disease.

A number of international celebrities have already taken the challenge, including Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Nike Air Max 270 Mens Sale , Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, and Apple Inc CEO Tim Cook.

In China, a group of top CEOs are emulating their Western counterparts. Those who have uploaded videos of themselves completing the challenge include Lei Jun, founder and chairman of Xiaomi Technology Co; Zhou Hongyi, Qihoo's chairman and CEO; and Li Yanhong, co-founder and CEO of Baidu Inc. Lei also donated $100 to the ALS Association.

Social media frenzy

At the Sina Weibo micro-blog site Nike Air Max 270 Womens Sale , the ""Ice Bucket Challenge"" topic has generated more than 3 billion views.

ALS is a rare disease that gradually reduces patients' muscle strength, eventually rendering them paralyzed and unable to speak, move, swallow and breathe.

In North America, ALS is commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease, after the star baseball player who died of the disease in 1941 at age 37. The best-known ALS patient today is British scientist Stephen Hawking. While most people with ALS die within several years Nike Air Max 270 Sale , Hawking has had the disease for decades.

The disease strikes 1 to 3 people out of 100,000. China currently has about 200,000 ALS patients.

""The medical treatment for ALS and related supporting facilities is very expensive and cannot be covered by most social welfare programs. This creates difficulties for many ALS patients and their families, both physically and mentally,"" said Zhu Changqing, associate professor at Shanghai Second Polytechnic University Air Max 270 Shoes Sale , who herself has muscle deterioration.

Zhu is the founder of the Neuro-Muscular Dystrophy Association of China, a social organization to promote public awareness and call for more support and care for patients.

""The ice bucket campaign has greatly helped improve the public awareness of ALS. More care should be given to them with the campaign,"" Zhu said.

On Monday, the China-Dolls Center for Rare Disorders also announced its own ice bucket challenge in China, trying to attract more attention to ALS and other rare diseases.

""Many celebrities positively participated in the campaign. But we don't want it to become a game among celebrities. We hope it can help bring more attention to rare diseases,"" said Wang Yiou Air Max 270 Hot Punch Sale , the center's founder and director.

While Mel Gibson is highly recognized overseas for his directorial work on films such as Braveheart (1995) and The Passion of the Christ (2004), he remained an unfamiliar name to most moviegoers in the Chinese mainland since only a few of his films have been shown here over the past decade.

However, Gibson's newest film, Hacksaw Ridge, looks ready to change the situation.

Currently regarded as a "must-see" film in China, Hacksaw Ridge quickly dominated the mainland box office by grossing more than 100 million yuan ($14.48 million) in its first weekend in the country. In the week following its mainland premiere on December 8 Air Max 270 Kids Sale , talk about the film has spread like wildfire across the Chinese Internet as audiences have spent countless hours discussing the film's depiction of the brutality of war and the power of faith.

A different perspective

Hacksaw Ridge tells the real life story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield), a combat medic who refuses to carry weapons onto the battlefield. Thinking he is either a maniac or a coward, his fellow soldiers and senior officers pick on and mock Doss during training. However, after he saves dozens of injured soldiers by himself while under heavy fire, he finally earns their admiration.

War films and TV dramas, especially those taking place during World War II Air Max 270 Mens Sale , are one of the most commonly seen genres in China. However, a number of these works have received more criticism than applause. One of the biggest critiques is that they depict war in an unrealistic manner.

The interesting thing is that disbelief is the reaction many Chinese moviegoers have had after watching Hacksaw Ridge. One thread running through discussions about the film is that many in the audience feel that if they didn't know the film was based on real people and real events, they would have thought it was an exaggerated advertisement for Christianity.

While Chinese writer and film critic Ye Xindai called the film's setting and presentation of the perfect lead character old and conservative, he praised Hacksaw Ridge's unique take on a war story.

"The essence of a war is killing and death, but this film views things from this incredible perspective of saving people, and dedicates a lot of time to foreshadowing Air Max 270 Womens Sale ," Ye told the Global Times on Monday, adding that instead of playing up the joy of victory, as many Chinese war films and TV dramas do, Hacksaw Ridge depicts the horror of what it's like to fight on the front lines.

Another film released not too long ago features a similar topic - Ang Lee's Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk. Many in the media have taken to comparing th.
