You've seen the videos online and all over social media and today outside the WHEC studios in downtown Rochester, we accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge issued to us by Martino Flynn.

News10NBC employees who took part include:
Derek Dalton, GM and VP
Lauren Burruto, Director of Sales
Kevin Rhoney, Assignment Editor
Chris Ford, News Director
Howard Cohen, Technical Operations Manager
Steve Patrick, Marketing Director
Paul Pakusch, Tech. Ops
Greg Carter, Chief Engineer
Rob VanDenBergh, Production Manager

We challenge our Hubbard Broadcasting sister TV stations KOB (Albuquerque, NM), WNYT (Albany), WDIO (Duluth, MN), KAAL (Austin-Rochester, MN) and KSTP (St. Paul – Minneapolis) to complete the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

News10NBC’s Nikki Rudd, Pat Taney, Rich Caniglia, Josh Nichols and Scott Kilbury previously accepted and completed the challenge. And it's not just the people you see on TV, several of our executive producers and newscast producers have also taken the challenge.

Over the past month, the ALS Association reports they have received $94.3-million mostly due to the "Ice Bucket Challenge".
