In a story Aug. 16 about Jon Bon Jovi accepting a challenge to douse himself with ice water for charity, The Associated Press erroneously reported the charity he was supporting. It was the ALS Association, not the ALS Foundation.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Bon Jovi, Christie, Kraft join in ALS fundraiser

Bon Jovi takes icy shower for good cause; Christie, Kraft do the honors in ALS fundraiser

By The Associated Press

Jon Bon Jovi isn't averse to taking ice cold showers — at least when it's for a good cause.

The rocker accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge to benefit the ALS Association in the fight against Lou Gehrig's disease.

And fellow New Jersey native, Gov. Chris Christie, along with New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft did the honors.

Dressed in a white T-shirt and dark shorts, Bon Jovi stood in a grassy field and braced himself. Christie and Kraft stepped up, tilted a large bucket above his head and let the icy waters flow. Everyone came away delighted, even the sopping wet rock star.

In keeping with the fundraiser's protocol, Bon Jovi nominated three more people to take the challenge or donate $100.

Christie posted the entire videotaped performance on Facebook.
