Rocky Administrators Accept Ice Bucket Challenge

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

By now, most of us have heard about the ice bucket challenge to raise awareness for Lou Gehrig's disease, or ALS.

Tuesday, the administration at Rocky Mountain College was challenged by the football team to take the challenge or donate $100.

They accepted the challenge.

The cheerleaders at Rocky were in charge of dumping the buckets of ice water on the six members of the school's cabinet.

Rocky's president, Bob Wilmouth, says the debilitating disease really needs more attention.

Wilmouth says school leaders gladly accepted the challenge.

But instead of just getting a bucket of ice water on their heads, they added a twist, including a challenge to other schools in Montana.

"We don't mind ice on our heads, that's number one and number two, we actually upped the bar a little bit. The cabinet will pledge $500, so we did that and we want to be collaborative, I think MSUB and Carroll knows that, so we challenged them as well and I'm sure they'll step up," says Wilmouth.

MSU Billings and Carroll College had 24 hours from 4:00pm on Tuesday to accept the challenge, or they must donate a minimum of $100 to the ALS Foundation.

If you would like to donate to the ALS Foundation, we've provided a link for you.
