The “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge” has been sweeping the country through social media, and this video of a man taking on the challenge may be the best yet.

Kreg Palko suffers from the degenerative disease, which motivated him and his daughter Gabriella to participate in the viral sensation.

“I can’t stand by and watch everyone pour ice on their heads without joining in myself,” he said.

The challenge spreads by each participant nominating others to either pour a bucket of ice water over their heads or donate $100 to an ALS organization. Between July 29 and August 12, the ALS Association and its 38 chapters have raised more than $4 million, compared to $1.12 in the same time period last year.
