Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan latest to take "Ice Bucket Challenge"

JANESVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - Congressman Paul Ryan has taken the “ice bucket challenge.” 

Original reports had indicated the Janesville Republican would just cut a check for ALS research, but it was his daughter who poured a bucket of ice water on him in a video posted to his Facebook page Saturday afternoon. He had previously donated $100.

The ice bucket challenge phenomenon was started to raise money to fight Lou Gehrig’s disease.

The ALS Foundation reports raising $11 million since the challenges started last month.
