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 .
