As students and teachers cheered, twenty-five Hollow Rock-Bruceton coaches, teachers and staff members accepted University School of Jackson’s challenge by allowing students donating to ALS Association to pour buckets of ice water over their heads.

Prior to the frigid dousing, Hollow Rock-Bruceton Central High School Principal Tim Gilmer challenged Camden Central High School’s coaches, administrators and teachers to accept the Tiger challenge within 24 hours or donate $100 to the ALS Association for Lou Gehrig’s disease research and assistance.

At Gilmer’s command, participants screamed and writhed as the icy burst hit them.

Since the ALS Association began tracking the campaign's progress on July 29, it has raised more than $53.3 million from 1.1 million new donors to one of the most charitable social media-driven campaigns in history.
