Sick Of Ice Bucket Challenge Videos? Two People Who Might Change Your Mind

Unlike many who have worn clothing more friendly to a dunking, Dr. Pascuzzi accepted the challenge in his suit, what he would typically wear to the office. "If you really care about the mission, you're going to go all out," Pascuzzi said. Among those who Pascuzzi challenged to follow his lead, Pacers president Larry Bird. Bird is supposed to complete the challenge within 24 hours, or otherwise make a donation of at least $100 to the ALS Association.
Dr. Pascuzzi is medical director of the ALS clinic at IU Health's Neuroscience Center in Indy. Some of his patients helped in the dunking and one of them, Janell Moore, later took the challenge herself. By the way, among those challenged by the doc was Larry Bird!
Some critics say the now-famous ice bucket challenge is more about vanity than charity. But as Ray Steele tells us, two people who could benefit from the challenge beg to differ.
