North Dakota’s electric cooperative managers take Ice Bucket Challenge

Innovative Energy Alliance Ice Bucket Challenge

Electric cooperative managers Chris Baumgartner and Don Franklund take the Ice Bucket Challenge.

Bright (well, cloudy) and early this morning, Chris Baumgartner and Don Franklund took an icy bath.

They took the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money and awareness for the ALS Association. Learn more: #IceBucketChallenge

Baumgartner and Franklund are co-managers of the Innovative Energy Alliance, which includes Roughrider Electric Cooperative, Slope Electric Cooperative, KEM Electric Cooperative and Mor-Gran-Sou Electric Cooperative, all North Dakota electric cooperatives.

The two took their challenge from the perfect piece of lineworker equipment – the bucket truck.

They challenged our CEO and General Manager Paul Sukut, but he’s out today. Watch this blog to see who takes the challenge in his place!
