No less than his father, former governor Luis “Chavit” Singson challenge his son, now Ilocos Sur Governor Ryan Luis Singson into the charity game Ice Bucket Challenge.
Governor Singson accepted the challenge and did it in front of provincial capitol of Ilocos Sur last August 27 and attended by some provincial mates and capitol employees.
After bathing in the icy cold water, he challenged the president of Philippine governor’s league, the city officials of Heritage City of Vigan led by City Mayor Eva Marie S. Medina and Vice Governor Deogracias Victor Savellano.
IBC, the hit game challenge started to help by donations for the patients of ALS not just now in the United States but invaded even in the rural provinces of the Philippines.
Philippine President Benigno Aquino III was also challenged in the IBC but declined the game because he has… well, colds. Anyway, even US president Barack Obama also declined the game.
