Matt and Megan accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge at the Fairgrounds

Out at the New York State Fair tonight, NBC3 anchors Megan Coleman and Matt Mulcahy participated in the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money for the ALS Association. Their challenge was broadcast live during NBC News at 6.

NBC3 Chief Meteorologist Wayne Mahar completed the challenge earlier in the week and challenged Coleman and Mulcahy.

CNY Central made a donation to the ALS Association to help raise money and awareness for the cause.

So far the ice bucket challenge has helped raise nearly $42 million.
