WEST BABYLON - The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been sweeping nation through viral videos where nominated folks dump buckets of chilly water over their heads for a good cause.

News 12 Reporter Erin Colton did her challenge and also nominated the guys at radio station WBAB.

They took their freezing baths outside their studio in West Babylon, where a bucket was poured over them before they plunged into an even larger, human-sized bucket.

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain. A spokesperson for the ALS Association recently said that $2.3 million has been raised since the end of July.
