Belichick, Kraft, And The Pats Take The Challenge [VIDEO]
This summer’s internet craze, the Ice Bucket Challenge, has finally reached New England Patriots coach, Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft.
People across the web, including us here on the Fun Morning Show, have gotten in on the action to spread awareness of ALS, also known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”. Since its explosion in popularity, the Ice Bucket Challenge hasn’t only littered the internet with videos of celebrities and athletes dumping water on their heads, but also helped raise upwards of $2.5 Million to fight ALS.
The Patriots released the video on their website with the two prominent Pats figures in front of the entire team, armed with ice cold buckets of water. This comes after Patriots Wide Receiver, Julian Edelman took the challenge, while nominating the likes of Gronk and Tom Brady to take the plunge. Before the New England Patriots proceeded with the challenge, Kraft challenged the entire AFC East Division to join them in fighting ALS, including their “good friends, the New York Jets.”
While a number of local athletes have gotten cold and wet for a great cause, Justin Timberlake also accepted the call to action from local Boston resident. Take a look at his Ice Bucket Challenge video here:
