JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Governor Mike Beebe got chilled this week and participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

A YouTube video uploaded on Thursday showed Beebe getting ice water dumped on him by his wife, Ginger.

Before the splashdown, Beebe issued a challenge to all Arkansans to participate.

If you're unfamiliar with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge here are the rules as stated by the ALS Association

"The challenge involves people getting doused with buckets of ice water on video, posting that video to social media, then nominating others to do the same, all in an effort to raise ALS awareness. Those who refuse to take the challenge are asked to make a donation to the ALS charity of their choice."

Show us your challenges by uploading them to See It, Snap It, Send It.
