Employees from the Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Department took part in the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. Watch the video and the reactions of the employees, who then went on to challenge the Sheriff's Departments from Erie, Chautauqua and Allegany Counties! The Benelovent Fund also donated $250 to help fight this progressive neurodegenerative disease.
