BENTON, Ill. -- The Benton American Legion hosted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Saturday.

Instead of a bucket, though, those who donated 50 dollars were soaked by a tractor full of water

All proceeds went toward the St. Louis, Missouri Regional Chapter of the ALS Foundation.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosisdiseasem, commonly known as ALS, is a disease that causes nerve cells to break down and affects muscle functionality.

The chapter raised over $3,000 dollars, some of which came from local lawmakers State Senator Dale Fowler and State Representative Dave Severin.
