It was only a matter of time before the #ALSIceBucketChallenge made its way to the Wolves and Lynx organization. It’s swept the nation over the last few weeks while helping raise tons of money and awareness for ALS — and it finally reached Target Center on Tuesday afternoon.

Wolves and Lynx President Chris Wright was called out over the weekend and accepted the challenge alongside Mike Dimond of Fox Sports North and Twins President Dave St. Peter at Gate 34 outside Target Field.

Wright, who’s been with the Wolves organization for 23 years, kept the challenge in his personal family and called out his three kids.

Wright wasn’t the only person from the organization challenged over the weekend. Wolves rookies Zach LaVine and Glenn Robinson III also manned up and accepted the challenge. It remains to be seen whether the trend will catch on throughout the rest of the Wolves and Lynx organization. 

And even current Vice President of Fan Experience Jeff Munneke, the organization's longest tenured employee, accepted the #ALSIceBucketChallenge near a familiar landmark outside Target Center. 

It looks like Flip Saunders and Jim Petersen could be next. So stay tuned.

The Minnesota Timberwolves Dancers also appear to have gotten in on the action after being challenged by the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders.
