Chile poured on man raising money for ALS

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – It’s the ice bucket challenge with a spicy New Mexican twist.

A Pennsylvania man is going to all 50 states to take the challenge and raise money for ALS research.

But instead of an ice water bath, Larry Kaplan is using something that’s connected to each state.

He stopped in Albuquerque and had a red and green chile bath.

“I figure if I can do all these crazy videos, pouring all this different stuff on my head in 30 days then maybe I can make a change and bring about some awareness and some funding as well,” said Kaplan.

Kaplan still has 12 more states to go. So far, he’s had buffalo wings, watermelon and chocolate cake poured on him. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
