The island’s three beach patrols have all completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a viral Internet campaign to help raise money and awareness for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Wildwood Crest, North Wildwood, and Wildwood lifeguards have all been filmed completing the challenge- which involves pouring a bucket of ice water on your head. Participants are “challenged” by friends on social media, and then given the option to complete the challenge or donate $100 to the ALS Association. Many who complete the challenge also donate.

After they complete the challenge, they can challenge three friends to participate.

The challenge has helped raise $88.5 million for the ALS Association, according to the association’s website. During the same period last year, $2.6 million was raised. To watch the Wildwood Beach Patrol's Ice Bucket Challenge Video, click here. To see North Wildwood's, click here.
