Raising money and awareness for ALS with the Ice Bucket Challenge

NORTH YARMOUTH (WGME) -- All across New England people have been getting doused with buckets of ice water but for a great cause. 

At North Yarmouth Academy Friday, members from Stride Envy Skating got doused with over 400 gallons of water and ice thanks to not one, but two Zambonis.

It's all to support former Boston College baseball star Pete Frates, who suffers from ALS. Pete wanted to bring awareness and attention to the disease, so he thought of the Ice Bucket Challenge, which has since gone viral. 

Stride Envy Skating is making a $500 pledge to help strike out ALS.
