Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo took the ice bucket challenge Tuesday afternoon on the Statehouse steps. Alongside half a dozen Rhode Island politicians, Raimondo dumped more than three gallons of icy water on her head to raise money for ALS research.
The ice bucket challenge is part of a national campaign to raise awareness about ALS and fund research for a cure.
Raimondo took the challenge from Massachussetts Governor Charlie Baker. She has now challenged House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello and Senate President Teresa Paiva-Weed to take up the cause.
