By now, almost everyone knows about the ALS ice bucket challenge, in which a person is challenged to have a bucket of ice water poured on that person; in doing so, that person also donates $10. Otherwise, the person challenged is asked to donate $100.

On top of that, the challenge has to be done within 24 hours. The latter was raised Tuesday, Aug. 26 by Polk County Commissioner Melony Bell. Along with Stacy Butterfield, County Comptroller and Clerk of the Courts, and Deputy County Manager William Beasley, Bell had accepted the challenge.
