It seems just about everyone these days is participating in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, including celebrities.
One of this summer's biggest viral trends, the challenge is spearheaded by the ALS Association with the hopes of raising awareness about the incurable and eventually fatal amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease.

Kennedy's clip eventually caught the attention of ALS patient and former promising athlete Peter Frates, who teamed up with friends and family to make the cause go viral on social media.
