BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge Police Department's 80th Basic Training Academy are cooling off for a good cause. They are participating in the ice bucket challenge.

The cadets got doused in an effort to raise awareness about ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease as well as money for research.

And by accepting the challenge they're also able to help keep the momentum for the fundraiser which has gone viral and millions have participated across the country.
