KANSAS CITY, Mo. - On Thursday, our own Jack Harry participated in the ALS #IceBucketChallenge dished out to him by the Missouri Mavericks.
Jack challenged MU’s head basketball coach Kim Anderson and KU’s head football coach Charlie Weis to participate. They both accepted.

Since the Ice Bucket Challenge began, the ALS Association has raised more than $11 million, according to a board member of the ALS in Texas.
The Mizzou Network posted a video of Anderson getting soaked by water from a cooler. Anderson challenged UCM Athletics Director Jerry Hughes, KOMU TV’s news anchor Jim Riek and 810 Sport’s Kevin Kietzman.
Anderson also signed the t-shirt and sold it on Twitter to raise money for ALS.

After getting soaked by senior linebacker Ben Heeney, Weis challenged former University of Texas football coach Mack Brown, KU basketball coach Bill Self and his son, Charlie Weis, Jr.
The athletic department also reported Weis donated to the ALS fund.
Thanks for being such good sports!
