In this Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014, photo provided by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, Jim Rigg, right, superintendent of the diocese's 113 schools, and Elder High School Principal Tom Otten take the ice-bucket challenge at Elder High School in Cincinnati. The archdiocese is discouraging its students and staff from donating any money raised as part of the challenge to the ALS Association, saying the group funds a study involving embryonic stem cell research "in direct conflict with Catholic teaching."
