One of the hottest new trends sweeping the nation is the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. It challenges people to dump a bucket of ice water on themselves and make a donation to the ALS Association. So far, the ALS Associaton has raised $22.9 million in donations compared to $1.9 million from last year.

Today, Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke and Evansville Courier & Press Editor Tim Ethridge took the challenge together. Mayor Winnecke challenged University of Evansville Men's Basketball Coach Marty Simmons to take the challenge, while Ethridge challenged University of Southern Indiana Men's Basketball Coach Rodney Watson to do the same.
