Nine, store manager at Buehler’s, accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge along with employees Anna Spaulding, Brandi Hogue, Lori Asire and Janet Howell.

“One of my employees called me out and I figured it was for a good cause,” Nine said. “I hope they find a cure for it.”

Those who are asked to take part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge must film themselves participating in the activity within 24 hours and also donate $10 to ALS research. Those who refuse the challenge have to donate $100.

After all five Buehler’s employees were doused with ice water, Spaulding called out co-workers Cole Moody and Joe Young.

“It was a little bit numbing,” Spaulding said.

Cindy McVey, who also works at Buehler’s, said the ice water is used to give people that feeling so they kind of know how it feels to have ALS.

According to the ALS association, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) also is often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The association’s website also states that it is, “a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.”
