Many people across the country are challenging others to have ice water dumped over their heads-all for a good cause. The "Ice Bucket Challenge,"which has gone viral, is a way to bring awareness to ALS.
Also known as Lou Gherig's Disease, ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. This disease affects a person's motor skills and eventually most patients are not able to walk, swallow or even speak.
The way the challenge works is once challenged, you may either get dumped or donate a $100 to an ALS charity of their choice. The Virginia coaches have accepted the challenge.
