Bon Jovi, Christie, Kraft join in ALS “ice bucket challenge” fundraiser

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Jon Bon Jovi isn’t averse to taking ice cold showers — at least when it’s for a good cause.

The rocker accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge to benefit the ALS Foundation in the fight against Lou Gehrig’s disease.

And fellow New Jersey native, Gov. Chris Christie, along with New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft did the honors.

Dressed in a white T-shirt and dark shorts, Bon Jovi stood in a grassy field and braced himself. Christie and Kraft stepped up, tilted a large bucket above his head and let the icy waters flow. Everyone came away delighted, even the sopping wet rock star.

In keeping with the fundraiser’s protocol, Bon Jovi nominated three more people to take the challenge or donate $100.

Christie posted the entire videotaped performance on Facebook.
