Teen Kieran Goodwin, Founder Of Extreme Sport Challenges, Does the #IceBucketChallenge

A 16-year-old charity fundraiser who swam the English Channel to raise money for cancer and disability sports has jumped back into the water and taken up the ice bucket challenge.

Kieran Goodwin, founder of Extreme Sport Challenges (ESCA), is a well known charity worker from Essex, despite still only being born in 1998.


The talented teen, who has nearly 70,000 followers on Twitter, is just one of the many faces to have taken up the challenge, which raises money for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) - known as motor neurone disease in the UK.
