Jennifer Beals takes the Ice Bucket Challenge
Jennifer has taken part in the ice bucket challenge to raise awareness for the neurodegenerative illness ALS. Nominated by her friend Kara Swisher, Jennifer took to the ocean for her challenge and nominated Troian Bellisario (Lauren), Don Cheadle (Devil In A Blue Dress) and Kyra Sedgwick (Proof).
Jennifer posted on twitter: “I’ve had cold water dumped on my head, but this time it was for a great charity. bit.ly/1BcFVsW #whatafeeling pic.twitter.com/N0Ec1aBhXJ”
The challenge involves people pouring cold water, often containing ice cubes, over their heads and posting the videos and images to social media. The participant then nominates someone to complete the challenge often in a set time frame, if they don’t they have to donate to the charity, or both.
Launched by the ALS Association in the US to raise money and awareness of ALS, the campaign has raised more than $13 million since 29 July, according to the charity.
