Chief’s take the bucket challenge

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML

A chilly reception all for a good cause for Hamilton’s top cop and fire chief.

Police Chief Glenn DeCaire and Fire Chief Rob Symonds took their turn this morning participating in the ALS ice bucket challenge at 11:30.

DeCaire was drenched by an officer on horseback.

Halton Police officers will participate in the challenge tomorrow afternoon.

ALS Society Canada’s Tammy Moore is challenging all Canadians to help with the research effort.

Moore says research to cure and treat diseases doesn’t happen without funding.

$22-million has bee raised in the US but it’s unknown how much has been raised in Canada through the challenge.
