Video: Stephen Hawking takes Ice Bucket Challenge

Published: Updated:

Stephen Hawking, who was diagnosed with MND more than 50 years ago, explained that, due to a bout of pneumonia “It would not be wise to have a bucket of water poured over me” and that instead his family would complete the challenge for him.

The prominent physicist urged everyone to donate to the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) to “eliminate this terrible disease.”
