WATCH VIDEO :: Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt takes part in "ice bucket challenge"

by

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The trendy "ice bucket challenge" has made its way to Green Bay City Hall.

Mayor Jim Schmitt decided to take part in the challenge, which aims to raise money to fight ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease.

Schmitt climbed to the top of the Zippin Pippin roller coaster at Bay Beach Amusement Park to perform the "ice bucket challenge" in the YouTube video above.

After completing the challenge, Schmitt called out fellow mayors Michael Walsh of De Pere, Justin Nickels of Manitowoc and Tim Hanna of Appleton to participate.

According to the ALS Association, about $5 million in donations have been made in the past several weeks since the challenge has caught on. Celebrities, politicians and athletes have taken part; including Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, along with Milwaukee Brewers players Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy, Carlos Gomez and Kyle Lohse.
