Who’s Taking The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge?

resizeRacine County District Attorney Rich Chiapete, Racine County Executive Jim Ladwig, the Horlick High School football team, the Union Grove Union High School football team, and a ton of others are helping to raise money for ALS and taking the Ice Bucket Challenge.

All over the country people are challenging one another to make a donation to the ALS Association and then post videos of themselves getting doused with buckets of ice.

Sure, it all may seem a little strange watching the guy that puts criminals away in Racine County get doused with water, but quite frankly the trend has caught on nationwide and it’s raised about $23 million for ALS Association. ALS, or “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

Check out the videos. And if you’ve done it, tag us @racinecountyeye and we’ll post them.
