Seattle Storm's Sue Bird, Brian Agler, and Lisa Brummel get dunked in freezing water

Watch the video of the Seattle Storm guard, head coach, and co-owner get dunked with freezing water here.

Last Saturday, the Seattle Storm released a video of guard Sue Bird, head coach Brian Agler, and co-owner Lisa Brummel get a bucket of freezing water dunked over their heads. They did so by taking part in the #Chillin4Charity Challenge by the Kay Yow Foundation which a number of women's basketball coaches and players took part in over the past several days.

The way the Challenge works is like this. A coach or a basketball player gets challenged to getting his/her head dunked in cold water. After the coach/player is drenched, then he/she challenges someone else to take part in the challenge. The challenged person has 48 hours to do it on video. If the challenged person does take part, then the original coach/player donates $50 to the Kay Yow Fund. If the challenged person doesn't do it, then that person has to donate $250 to the Fund.

Bird challenged Temple women's basketball head coach Tonya Cardoza, Indiana Hoosiers guard Taylor Agler (who is Coach Agler's daughter), and Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi. Coach Agler challenged Seattle Times writer Jayda Evans and Minnesota Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve. Brummel challenged Seattle University women's basketball head coach Joan Bonvicini and WNBA President Laurel Richie.

After all three were drenched in freezing water, they dumped two buckets of cold water on Doppler, the team mascot, who then challenged Volt, Maddie, and Prowl, mascots for the Tulsa Shock, New York Liberty, and Minnesota Lynx respectively.

Enjoy the video from the Storm's YouTube channel, which is embedded above.
