NFA girls’ basketball is Chillin’ 4 Charity

Remember the Harlem Shake? Well, the latest viral video craze is all for a good cause.

The Newburgh Free Academy girls’ basketball team recently made a Chillin’ 4 Charity video. Check it out in the player above.

University of Arizona head coach Niya Butts got the ball rolling when she challenged her Pac 12 counterparts to the challenge, in which coaches and players get dumped with ice water and the results captured on video. It’s all to support the Kay Yow Foundation, which raises money for breast cancer awareness. Yow, the Hall of Fame head coach from North Carolina State, passed away in 2009.

The way it works is that a coach who has already been soaked will challenge another coach. If the challenged coach accepts, the challenging coach donates $50 and the freshly-soaked coach will challenge someone else. If the challenged coach declines, they’re “obligated” to donate $250 instead.

Newburgh Free Academy head coach Rich Desiderio was challenged by Ossining’s Dan Ricci. Desiderio has responded by challenging Cornwall’s Chris Miller and Goshen’s Gus Lawson. Will they rise to the challenge?
