Ice Bucket Challenge: Who Took Part?

Every so often while phenomenons sweep through the nation like wild fire.

The rubik’s cube.

The pet rock.

The slinky.

The Macarena.

In 2014, the Ice Bucket Challenge swept through the nation, freezing all the wild fire from the east coast to the west coast. Celebrities of all kinds participated in the ritual of having ice dumped over your head.

This got me thinking. How many of the presidential candidates this cycle took the challenge in 2014? President Obama and Vice President Biden famously wrote a check instead. (President Obama gave $100)
