Fox 42 News Reporter Melina Matthes Accepts ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

OMAHA (kptm) - Our Facebook timelines have been filled lately with people completing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

Fox 42's Melina Matthes was nominated by her cousin and accepted the challenge.

She's creating awareness for Lou Gehrig's disease or ALS by dumping a bucket of ice cold water on her head.

After making a donation to the ALS Association, she nominated three other people to complete the task. Her nominations include Crime Stoppers Coordinator James Shade, Cage-A-Cop Kevin Wiese, and Fox 42 News Anchor Monty Torres.
