The Albuquerque Isotopes Triple-A baseball team has challenged the El Paso Chihuahuas to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

The Isotopes posted a video on their Facebook page about 7 p.m. Wednesday.

The team posted that it had been challenged by the ALS Association in New Mexico, and in turn the team challenged the Chihuahuas and the Chattanooga Lookouts, the Double-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

In the Facebook post, the team adds that the Chihuahuas have 24 hours to complete the challenge.

The Ice Bucket Challenge is a viral movement to raise awareness and donations for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

The ALS Association said it has received $4 million in donations in the last two weeks.  Last year they brought in $1.1 million.
