KRIS 6 Accepts Ice Bucket Challenge

CORPUS CHRISTI - The Ice Bucket Challenge is a viral sensation and three of our own have been challenged.

On Friday's Sunrise morning show, Carroll Tigers Coach Tony Trevino and two of his players challenged our morning anchor Rachel Cole, weatherman Maclovio Perez, and General Manager Greg McAlister.

Now if you haven't heard of the Ice Bucket Challenge, it's where people pour a bucket of ice water over themselves and then challenge another to do the same or make a donation to fight ALS within 24 hours.

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a 100% fatal disease that slowly stops voluntary muscle movement. People with the disease progressively lose their ability to eat, speak, walk, and eventually breathe.

To watch Rachel, Mac, and Greg get drenched, tune on Monday morning to KRIS 6 Sunrise that starts at 5 AM.
