Walls—who was nominated by Angus Grame, president of Selkirk College—threw out the challenge to Cranbrook mayor Wayne Stetski.

Other members of the COTR’s senior management staff also completed the challenge last week.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has become a viral sensation on social media, with celebrities, politicians and athletes dumping ice water over themselves and nominating others to complete the challenge within 24 hours.

ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), also known as Lou Gerhig’s disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. For more information on ALS and the Ice Bucket Challenge, visit www.alsa.org.
