Prescott Campus Chancellor Dr. Frank Ayers accepted the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Association's Ice Bucket Challenge during halftime of last Tuesday’s women’s soccer game.
Students purchased raffle tickets for a chance to dump the water onto Dr. Ayers, and the proceeds from their purchases were donated to the association to find a cure for Lou Gehrig's Disease. The chancellor ultimately got drenched with two buckets before the soccer game resumed and the Prescott squad won it 4-0.
