Ice Bucket

The viral fund-raiser the "Ice Bucket Challenge" has raised more than $41.8 million, according to The New York Times.

And the credit union movement is getting in on it—supporting the ALS Association's effort to find a cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
CUNA's Interim President/CEO Bill Hampel accepted the challenge Thursday in D.C. from the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association and the Credit Union Association of New York.

Prior to the bath on the National Mall with the U.S. Capitol in the background, Hampel challenged John Worth, NCUA's chief economist, Bill Cheney, former CUNA president/CEO and current head of Schools First FCU, CUNA's Executive Vice President Jill Tomalin, and Cam Fine, president/CEO of the Independent Community Bankers of America.

Looks like Cheney is ready.

Your move John, Jill, and Cam.


UPDATE: Jill Tomalin responded to the challenge Friday in Madison.
