Robb Heineman was challenged by MLS Commissioner Don Garber to complete the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a viral campaign designed to raise awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, commonly known as ALS or "Lou Gehrig's Disease."
The campaign works by a person receiving a challenge to either donate money to ALS research or to dumb a bucket of ice water on their heads. They, in turn, challenge more people in order to keep the cycle going and to continue to raise awareness and funds for ALS research.
So when Robb Heineman was challenged by the commissioner, he used the MLS Cup as his bucket. The video is fun to watch as he, dressed in a "Where's Waldo" United States jersey, soaks himself before challenging Peter Vermes, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost to the challenge.
So far, Andy Reid is the only one to have responded to the challenge, receiving a dousing this morning at Chiefs training camp.
