In an effort to spread ALS awareness, thousands around the world are taking part in a viral movement called the "Ice Bucket Challenge." If you haven't heard by now, the challenge involves dumping ice water on yourself and nominating three others to do the same. If you do not respond within 24 hours, you are kindly asked to make a donation.

The movement has officially reached the Blackhawks organization, and it began with Brandon Saad on Sunday, who then nominated Andrew Shaw, Nick Leddy, and Patrick Sharp. Below, you can view their videos of the ice-dumping.




Leddy and Sharp have yet to respond, but it didn't stop there. Patrick Kane, who vowed to make a donation for missing the 24-hour "requirement," and Joel Quenneville both accepted the challenge. The videos below are as great as you could imagine.




The chain reaction is spreading to other sports as well. After nominating former teammate Adam Burish, Kane also challenged Joakim Noah to participate. The Bulls center along with captain Jonathan Toews and President & CEO John McDonough are officially on the clock. Stay tuned.
