SANTA CLARA -- Scratch one off the Earthquakes' bucket list.

Eight Quakes took part in the ALS ice bucket challenge that is chillin' the nation after Thursday's practice at Buck Shaw Stadium, among them star striker Chris Wondolowski and defender Jordan Stewart.

The players simultaneously dumped buckets of ice water over their heads, and then challenged others to do the same.

MLS commissioner Don Garber has also accepted the challenge, which is an effort to raise funds and spread awareness about ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

The Quakes, who plan to make a donation to the ALS Association, were challenged by Michelle Rozzen, a former San Jose State water polo player now living in Los Angeles whose dad died of ALS.
