The Ice Bucket Challenge is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on one's head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research. It has gone viral throughout social media during the summer.
The challenge dares nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and challenging others to do the same. A common stipulation is that nominated people have 24 hours to comply or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation.
Earlier this summer, the Cal Poly women's basketball coaching staff -- head coach Faith Mimnaugh (pictured below right) and assistants Kari Duperron, Kristin Iwanaga and Mackenzie Argens -- were called out in the Chillin4Charity plunge in support of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.
