GREENWICH, Conn. -- When members of the Greenwich Police Department accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Monday, they took it very seriously, according to Patch.com.
Nearly 20 officers and staff members took part to honor Sgt. Roger Petrone, who died Feb. 20 after a seven-year battle with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
They were doused with 600 gallons of ice water dropped from a bucket loader in front of Greenwich Police headquarters.
The Greenwich Police Department also sends a team to the annual ALS Tri-State Trek bike ride to raise money for research in honor of Petrone. To donate to the Greenwich Police team, click here.
