More CUs Taking Up Ice Bucket Challenge
Tuesday, August 26, 2014 6:55 AM

The Ice Bucket Challenge continues to attract supporters. Communication FCU in Oklahoma City, Okla. recently took up the challenge. In fact, 10 members of its management team not only agreed to have buckets of ice poured over them, but the credit union also made a generous donation of $1,000 to the ALS Association, a nonprofit organization that raises money for research and patient services, and advocates and promotes awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

Here’s how it works, someone challenges you to pour freezing water over your head or pay the price - $100 to support the fight against the Lou Gehrig's disease. The ALS Association reports that most participants are doing both.

Communication FCU posted a video of their recent Ice Bucket Challenge on Facebook, at www.facebook.com/CommunicationFederalCreditUnion.

FirstLight FCU in El Paso, Texas is also getting in on the fun and supporting a great cause in the process. The credit union’s President and CEO Karl Murphy was among the members of the executive team to have a bucket of ice water dumped over his head. That video is also posted on Facebook, at www.facebook.com/firstlightfcu.
