Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder is the latest in the long line of high-profile figures to get soaked for ALS.

Synder took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, the latest to do so in a campaign organizers said has raised $15.6 million in donations. 

"ALS is a terrible disease," the governor said. "It's something we need to act on."

The ALS Association said its raising money to provide care to people and their families coping with the incurable disease. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, known also as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a disease that attacks nerve cells responsible for controlling voluntary muscles like those in the legs and arms.
