This summer, several Canadian Olympians decided to beat the heat in an unusual yet highly effective manner, all in the name of charity.

It’s all part of an ALS awareness campaign called the “Ice Bucket Challenge” that involves (you guessed it) drenching oneself in icy cold water.

Simple?

Yes.

Fun to watch?

You bet.
