LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Gov. Dave Heineman took an ice-cold shower outside his home to raise awareness about a devastating disease.
Heineman completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Wednesday with help from his wife, first lady Sally Ganem. People who take the challenge douse themselves with a bucket of freezing water to raise money for Lou Gehrig's disease research.
Heineman was challenged by Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad and University of Nebraska-Lincoln volleyball coach John Cook.
Heineman also donated $100 to the cause through the ALS Association's Nebraska Chapter. A video of the drenching was posted on the governor's Facebook page at the link below.
