Entire Patriots team participates in Ice Bucket Challenge

Robert Kraft, Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, and the entire Patriots football team took the Ice Bucket Challenge.

The Ice Bucket Challenge was the brainchild of friends and family members of Pete Frates, a 29-year-old former Boston College baseball player who learned he had ALS in 2012. Each person who endures the icy water nominates a handful of others to complete the task themselves in the next 24 hours.

Anyone active on social media has probably seen friends, family members or celebrities take the Ice Bucket Challenge the past few days. In the sports world, Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens, Pittsburgh Penguins forward Sidney Crosby and New York Giants owner John Mara.

At the conclusion of the workout, the Patriots took part in the "Ice Bucket Challenge" to raise money for ALS research. Many buckets of water were dumped, and even after the initial multi bucket dump, individual buckets were being hurled at teammates, including quarterback Tom Brady (#12) who takes aim and fires.
