PORTAGE, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Portage Public Safety officers answer the Ice Bucket Challenge after the gauntlet was thrown down Thursday by officers in Kalamazoo.

The Ice Bucket Challenge has been spreading across the country, raising money for a good cause.

Once a challenge is extended, daredevils have 24 hours to answer by dumping a bucket of ice water over their heads and then challenging someone else. Or, they can make a donation to the fight against ALS, also called Lou Gehrig's Disease.

Portage officers then extended the challenge to the Portage Central Marching Band and the Battle Creek Fire Department.

So far they've raised about $400 Friday.

Nationwide, the challenge has raised more than $9.5 million to fight the disease.
