After #makeuptransformation comes the Ice Bucket Challenge

Celebrities far and wide, from Justin Bieber to Cristiano Ronaldo, have participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. On Monday (August 18), Marc Pingris and his fellow Gilas Pilipinas teammates joined in.

Marcus Douthit and Jared Dillinger joined Pingris in the Instagram video, while Beau Belga and June Mar Fajardo carried the Gilas cooler over their heads. Pingris then challenged San Mig teammates Joe Devance and Rafi Reavis. Devance has posted his own version, thereafter challenging other Mixers PJ Simon and James Yap.
