200 high school students do 'ice bucket challenge'

At Peach County High School, some students and teachers didn't have any trouble cooling off.

They participated in what they call "Middle Georgia's largest ice bucket challenge."

About 200 students and teachers were soaked thanks to the Peach County Fire Department.

The school's Future Farmers of America Club were challenged by the Newton County High School chapter.

Members of the club took $1 donations from students who wanted to participate.

The club then matched the total they received from students, ending with around $400 being donated to ALS research.

The challenge was then passed on to Perry High School, Crawford County High School, and Warner Robins High School.

One student whose family is affected by ALS, says she's glad she did the challenge.

"I was happy that I could do it, and I have people in my family with it, so I wanted to participate in it," said sophomore Briana Knight.

The club says 100 percent of the money donated is going toward ALS research.
