The latest local celeb to take the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS research is Boston model Gisele Bundchen. Bundchen posted her ice bucket video Monday afternoon and nominated Shakira, Anna Wintour, and Mario Testino to follow her lead. Bundchen says in her Instagram video post that she took the challenge because “my Uncle Milton and my dear friend Charlene’s mom lost their fight to ALS.”
