REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Along with a growing number of celebrities from around the world, Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire Jr. joins the trending ALS ice bucket challenge.

Another kababayans, former WWE star and Hollywood actor, Dave Batista, challenged the Fil-Am boxer to do this challenge, which aims to raise awareness about Lou Gehrig’s Disease as well as funds for the ALS foundation.

Donaire has raised $5,000 dollars for these causes.

“Dave Batista, he just challenged me to do it,” said Donaire Jr. “He knows that I’m a skinny guy. I get cold really fast, I get cold easily, so that’s what tormented me, but I’ll do it for a good cause.”

“We figured all these celebrities and industry people in Las Vegas want to do this, and all the celebrities can get it and after that we can water the lawn or put it back in the pool so we are not wasting any water,” said Rachel Donaire, the wife of Nonito. “Water is precious by the way.”

Donaire has now challenged Manny Pacquiao to do the ice bucket.
