We highlight Peter Frates who began the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge...

pete_main.jpg

Peter Frates is a 29 year old former Division 1 college athlete as the Captain of Boston College Baseball who was recently diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Since diagnosis, while courageously battling the progression of this horrific disease, Pete has made it his mission to spread awareness about this often misunderstood and presently incurable disease. He continues to inspire many with his positive outlook, determination and unwavering spirit. “Team Frate Train” is carrying on his mission of finding a treatment and cure for ALS.

The Frates family started the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge as a local event to raise funds and awareness for ALS - from there it grew - with the magic of social media - and is still growing - coast to coast and beyond - everyday people, sports celebrities, politicians - AMAZING!

We thank Pete and the entire Frates family for inspiring the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! Learn more about Pete at www.PeteFrates.com.
