Potandon employees take ice bucket challengePotandon Produce LLC is participating in the ALS ice bucket challenge.

Steve Ottum, Idaho Falls, Idaho-based Potandon’s chief operating officer, took the challenge — dumping a bucket of ice-cold water on his head — and challenged the company’s employees, offering to make a donation for everyone who took the challenge, according to a company news release.

As part of the effort, Potandon donated $500 to ALS research.

The ALS ice bucket challenge was started in July by two ALS patients, Pete Frates and Pat Quinn.
