(Cleveland )- Case Western Reserve University is getting into the spirit of the Ice Bucket Challenge.

The entire freshman class took to Case's football stadium Monday night to raise awareness of ALS in an event planned just hours earlier.

Case's undergraduate admissions director Bob McCullough says more than 12-hundred buckets were filled with a ton of ice to complete the challenge, which was then passed along to Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
