VIDEO: Deputy Peter Steppe takes the Cold Water Challenge

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock County Sheriff's Deputy received a cold bath for a good cause on Thursday evening.

Deputy Peter Steppe had seven buckets of ice cold water dumped on him at the Lubbock County Courthouse.

It was all part of the Cold Water Challenge.

Law enforcement officers across the country challenge each other, with donations going to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

"If they accept the challenge they get to do the same thing, get hit with ice, make a donation of $10, at least $10 to the memorial fund. If they don't, it's $100."

A Grand Prairie Police Officer issued the challenge to Steppe.

He's now challenging others to do the same.
