Ice Bucket Challenge
A craze is sweeping the nation, and it has now reached Fairfield. That craze is the “Ice Bucket Challenge,” which consists of being doused in a bucket of ice water to raise money for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Once the person agrees to be doused in ice water, he or she challenges another person to complete the challenge within 24 hours. Typically, the people challenged donate money to the ALS Association or other ALS charities, and in some versions of the game, they must donate double the amount requested if they don’t complete the challenge in the 24-hour limit. Participants usually record the procedure and post it on social media to prove they’ve done it.
