The town of Windsor and the Windsor Police Department participated in the ice bucket challenge Friday, drenching themselves with a front-end loader full of ice water outside of the Windsor Police Department.
The challenge, which has been widespread on social media for the past few weeks, calls for someone to dump a bucket of ice water on their head to raise awareness for, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Whoever completes the challenge then nominates others to complete the challenge and make a donation to the ALS Association.
The town was nominated by the Fort Collins Police Department and the City of Loveland. In turn, the town nominated the Windsor Chamber of Commerce, the Windsor Re-4 School District and Windsor Police Chief John Michael’s family.
As of Friday, the ALS Association had received $53.3 million in donations between July 29 and Aug. 21, compared to $2.2 million during the same time period last year.
