SOUTH BEND, Ind.--- The Ice Bucket Challenge to combat ALS has taken over the nation, but for one local group, it hits a little closer to home.

"Friends Of Faye" participated in The Ice Bucket Challenge today, 2 months to the day that Dr. Faye Magneson passed away from ALS.

Over the past 10 years, the group has helped raised over $1.5 million.

The Ice Bucket Challenge has spear-headed the effort to raise money for ALS, as well.

As of today, the ALS association has received $15.6 million in donations, compared to $1.8 million at this time last year.

Among a bunch of friends and family members, “Friends Of Faye” nominated the entire NewsCenter 16 team, so NewsCenter 16's Shaun Gallagher took the challenge on our behalf.
