The Ice Bucket Challenge on behalf of the ALS Association has been ongoing for about two weeks. In the process, it has raised more than $4 million for ALS (more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, a fatal neurological condition with no known cure) research, according to the Association's press release. Now the Ice Bucket Challenge has come to Xavier Nation, as Coach Mack has issued it to all Xavier fans. I'll let the man himself explain:
Xavier Nation, you've been challenged. You have til Friday at 5pm to get creative. #IceBucketChallenge Winner gets 4 tix to our opener!!— Chris Mack (@CoachChrisMack) August 13, 2014
In addition to tagging your video with #IceBucketChallenge make sure you add #XavierIce so we can pick a winner!— Chris Mack (@CoachChrisMack) August 13, 2014
Lest you think Coach Mack is a paper tiger in the realm of Ice Bucket Challenges, here's video proof of his participation:
Basically, you get drenched in ice water for both awareness and fundraising for ALS. In addition, Coach Mack is giving out four tickets to the opener for whoever submits the best video (criteria for "best" isn't entirely clear, though I suspect it will be whoever makes Coach Mack laugh the most) by 5pm Friday. Get creative. Go nuts. Watch some Dude, Perfect videos for inspiration. Most of all, raise some money to help get us one step closer to a cure for a cruel disease.
