Winnebago’s Randy Potts raises money for ALS taking the ice bucket challenge

While the “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge” craze roars — or splashes — on, Winnebago Industries Inc. Chairman, CEO and President Randy Potts took the challenge in an unusual way today (Aug. 22) – in the company’s motorhome water test booth. 

Potts challenged the rest of the Winnebago executive team, who, after seeing Potts get drenched, declined to participate in the water.

As a result of the team declining the challenge, Winnebago Industries made a donation of $1000 to the ALS organization.

The ice bucket challenge phenomenon has been raising money to support research into Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) — also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease, a degenerative condition.

Participants have a bucket of ice water dumped on their heads and publicly challenge another person or group of people to do the same — or to decline by donating money to fund ALS research.

On August 21, the New York Times reported that the ALS Association had received $41.8 million in donations from July 29 through Aug. 21.
