Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy take the plunge
Why have one superstar golfer take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge when you could have two?
Current world No. 1 McIlroy and former No. 1 Woods were nominated by Nike's Mark Parker. The pair, in turn, called out Nike's Phil Knight and Rafael Nadal (by Woods) and former President George W. Bush, Wayne Rooney and model Meghan Markle (by McIlroy.)
To add a small twist, the two decided to dump the icy buckets of water on each other, with Woods getting doused first.
The impact of this global phenomenon has clearly affected awareness of the disease and its charitable contributions. In 2013, the national ALS chapter raised $23.5 million. In the past 22 days, the Ice Bucket Challenge has raised $22.9 million by the ALS Association and its chapters.
