Gov. Christie spent part a summer day Tuesday shivering in near-freezing temperatures after willingly being doused with a bucket of cold water. 

The New Jersey governor on Tuesday posted on his Facebook page a video showing two of his kids dumping a bucket of ice water on his head as part of the Ice Bucket Challenge, a social-media fueled fundraiser set up by the ALS Foundation for battling the debilitating and deadly disease.

Christie nominated three other people to complete the challenge within 24 hours or donate $100: Democratic New Jersey U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and late-night TV host Jimmy Fallon.

Fallon already made good on the challenge, taking a dip on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday night with all of the members of The Roots.
