Columbus Regional CEO Scott Hill takes the Ice Bucket Challenge

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - On Thursday, Columbus Regional President and CEO Scott Hill showed his support for ALS research by taking the Ice Bucket Challenge.

He was splashed with three (clean, presumably unused) bedpans full of ice water before a large bucket of cold water was poured on his head.

Hill was challenged by Terry Bell of Headquarter Nissan earlier this week.

Before he completed the challenge, we asked him what the challenge meant to him on a personal level.

"I think it's really about raising awareness for a very deadly disease," Hill replied. "Lou Gehrig's disease afflicts many people in the United States. We want to raise awareness, we want to raise money, we want to find a cure."

Hill said he also plans to make a donation to the ALS Association.
