The challenge raises awareness and money for charity, including those that benefit ALS research.

At noon in Oberlin, two dozens employees of the medical products company, Synapse BioMedical, took the challenge. The company's founder Tony Ignagni presented the Northern Ohio chapter of the ALS Association with a check for $2,500.
