HUDSON – Police officers and civilian department employees made good Thursday morning on an ice bucket challenge issued last week by Nashua police.

Some 18 personnel, from records clerk Tracey Carney to several dispatchers, veteran patrol officers, detectives and prosecutor Joseph Tessier, gathered outside headquarters Thursday and doused themselves for the cause. And in true Ice Bucket Challenge fashion, they posted their proof in a youtube video.

The Ice Bucket Challenge, an ALS-awareness and fundraising stunt, spread like wildfire since the family of 29-year-old Peter Frates doused themselves in early August.

Frates, a former Boston College baseball player diagnosed with ALS in 2012, unknowingly touched off the rapid spread of the challenge when he posted his own ice bucket video online, accompanied by the song, “Ice, Ice Baby,” and issued a challenge.

Hudson officers, in turn, “called out,” or challenged, the Litchfield Police Department, Hudson Fire Department and Hudson Highway Department to do an ice bucket challenge.

As part of Thursday’s event, Hudson Police Employee Association and the Hudson Police Relief Association each donated $100 to ALS research.
