Aaron Rodgers, Sophia Minnaert Respond to Brewers “Ice Bucket Challenge”
Over the weekend, the Ice Bucket Challenge made its way through the Brewers Clubhouse, starting with Ryan Braun on Saturday and culminating with Kyle Lohse, Jonathan Lucroy and Carlos Gomez on Sunday.
Designed to help raise money and awareness for ALS, the Ice Bucket Challenge is quite simple: Fill up a bucket of ice water, as cold as you can get. Have someone record a video while you dump the bucket over your head. Then share on social media, issuing the challenge to three friends.
Yesterday, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (via Jonathan Lucroy);PGA golfer Jason Dufner (via Kyle Lohse, likely as payback for the Stadium Shootout Golf Challenge); and FOX Sports Wisconsin’s Sophia Minnaert (via Carlos Gomez) were tapped for the challenge and so far, two of the three complied.
No word yet from Jason Dufner, but we’ll give him an extension on the 24-hour window commonly given for the challenge, as the golfer was forced to withdraw from the 2014 PGA Championship after nine holes on Thursday due to bulging discs in his neck.
Thanks to each of these Ice Bucket Challenge participants for being such good sports and helping to raise awareness and funds for ALS. To learn more about how you can help, click here.
