When we saw a video of Oprah doing the ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) ice bucket challenge, we knew the fundraising campaign had hit full-on viral status. By now you all probably know what it’s about: if challenged, you have to either dump a bucket of ice water on your head or donate to the ALS Association in the United States. Judging from the number of people dumping ice water on their heads, you’d think the campaign wasn’t raising any money — but reports that as of Monday, the ALS Association has received $15.6 million in donations compared to $1.8 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 18). Plus what better way to raise awareness for a cause than watching Cristiano Ronaldo get doused in ice water while wearing tiny underwear? Without further ado, here are five soccer players who have participated in the challenge so far:

1. Neymar

2. Cristiano Ronaldo
