Members of the Kennedy clan decided to take on the “Ice Bucket Challenge” for ALS awareness during a sunny day in Hyannis Port. In a video posted to Facebook this morning, Maxwell Kennedy, son of Ethel Skakel Kennedy and the late Robert F. Kennedy, introduces Ethel and several grandchildren — all lined up in a row with buckets of icy water — before they each dump the chilly mixture on their heads, one by one. Last but not least is Ethel, who stopped before pouring the water on her own head to call out President Obama to take the challenge.
The Obamas are currently vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard. Time will tell if the president accepts the challenge.
