Several Colts Taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

New, comments

Several Colts - including owner Jim Irsay - have taken the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, helping to raise awareness and support for ALS and for finding a cure.

USA TODAY Sports

Recently, people all over and throughout the NFL as well have been dumping ice water on themselves.  It's not just a random thing, however, there's actually a purpose behind it - to raise support and awareness for ALS and for finding a cure.  It's people having fun, sure (if you can call dumping ice water on yourself fun), but more importantly it's for a good cause, and a lot of the people who have been doing this challenge have donated as well.

As I mentioned, however, many people around the NFL are doing the challenge, and that includes a number of people from the Indianapolis Colts organization - including owner Jim Irsay after a challenge from Larry Bird.
