Posted on August 28, 2014 by Jeremy Hyman

ALS #IceBucketChallenge Video Recap

Take a look at many members of the Monumental family who have taken part in this great cause over the last few weeks.


Reports are now out that over 94 million dollars has been raised for ALS research.

Thanks to everyone who helped spread this viral campaign.



Tuesday, 8/26, Update

We can cross another member of the Wizards off the list for completing the #IceBucketChallenge. This time it's Glen Rice Jr., who nominated his pops, former NBA star Glen Rice Sr. to take on the challenge:


Rice may win the award for taking the most amount of water, unless you count Kevin Seraphin's five bucket challenge.



Monday, 8/25, Update

The list continues to grow and more money continues to pour in for ALS research. Today's update is Wizards center Marcin Gortat, who was challenged by so many people he decided to build an ice bucket machine:


Well done Marcin!



Thursday, 8/21, Update

Another update to our Ice Bucket Challenge page, a cause that has now raised over 30 million dollars for ALS research.

Today it was big man Kevin Seraphin, a social media maven, who took on the challenge not once, but five times, while also showing some of his video editing skills:


Seraphin was challenged by Wizards' Senior VP of Basketball Operations Tommy Sheppard.

On Tuesday, DeJuan Blair met up with his former college coach Jamie Dixon, and some of his former Pitt teammates to take on the challenge:

Sunday Update

Two more updates for today. First, we have Wizards Senior VP of Basketball Operations Tommy Sheppard. He accepted Ernie Grunfeld's challenge and had his daughter Bailey join him in taking on the ice bath:


Sheppard called out Kevin Seraphin, Marcin Gortat, and Glen Rice Jr, who are all now on the clock.

Also accepting Grunfeld's challenge was Wizards superfan and CNN host, Wolf Blitzer:

Saturday Update

Another day, another Ice Bucket Challenge accepted. This time it's Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld who accepted head coach Randy Wittman's challenge.

Friday Update:

The #IceBucketChallenge has been accepted by two more members of the organization.

Garrett Temple accepted Beal's challenge:

And apologies for the poor video quality, but this is video proof of head coach Randy Wittman accepting Beal's challenge!


Witt challenged Ernie Grunfeld and other members of the Wizards Basketball Ops staff.

We'll keep updating as they come in....



4:45pm Update: John Wall has accepted Bradley Beal's challenge!

He's challenged Redskins' QB RGIII, and his former Kentucky teammates DeMarcus Cousins and Eric Bledsoe.


So the latest craze has hit F St as Bradley Beal accepted Quentin Cook's challenge and took on the #IceBucketChallenge. A phenomenon that has swept the country, helping to both raise awareness and dollars for ALS.

Full Video

It's simple, if you get challenged you have 24 hours to have ice water dumped over your head or else donate $100 to ALS research. Once you take part in the challenge you can call out others to take the challenge. If you accept the challenge, you donate $25 or any amount you choose. 

Beal challenged John Wall, Garrett Temple, and Randy Wittman. So, they have 24 hours!

Here are more shots of Beal via Instagram:

And earlier, G-Wiz, Jumoke Davis, and Dan Nolan accepted Slapshot's challenge and took part:


They challenged Dave Johnson, Glenn Consor, and Rodney Rikai...

So far, Glenn has accepted:


And he challenged Steve Buckhantz, Phil Chenier, and Chris Grain (CSN Producer).

And you see how this works....

As of Wednesday, the campaign has raised over 2.3 million dollars for ALS research, a disease that still has no cure. This has been great way to help spread awareness to this deadly disease.

We'll update the page if more accept the challenge...
