The Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for ALS has taken social media by storm and raised millions of dollars for ALS research.
Pete Frates, a 29-year old former Boston College baseball captain, came up with the idea for the fundraiser for ALS, “Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,” or as it’s commonly known, “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.”
People from all walks of life have taken the challenge — former presidents, celebrities and athletes, as well as everyday people.
But as the video shows, not everyone is cut out for the challenge.
