Staff at a rural veterinary practice in central Kansas have joined the ranks of politicians, celebrities and everyday Americans who are getting soaked in ice water in the name of charity.
Earlier this week, Ninnescah Veterinary Service, a mixed animal practice near Hutchinson, Kan., shared their post of the “entire Ninnescah family” getting soaked in the Ice Bucket Challenge. Click the video above to see staff drenched with ice water.
Staying true to their rural roots, however, staff didn’t turn to standard-sized buckets to do the job. Instead, they completed the challenge with the help of a skid loader.
The Ice Bucket Challenge is an effort to raise awareness and money for the neurodegenerative illness ALS that has since gone viral. Those involved have done more than endure icy water. According to the ALS Association, the group had received $31.5 million in donations between July 29 and Aug. 20, compared to $1.9 million donated during the same period last year.
