I want to re-create the 'Ice Bucket Challenge' but name it

Resolved Question:

I want to re-create the 'Ice Bucket Challenge' but name it The 'Cold Water Challenge'. If I did this, can the people who originally made the Ice Bucket Challenge sue me for taking their idea ?
I'm starting a non-profit company that wants to offer young people with life threatening or terminal conditions a chance to have a holiday of a lifetime with their families in Orlando.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
P.S. I did contact the Frates family (who originally came up with the idea) a few years ago asking if I could do this, but there was no outcome.
Regards
Ramon
