While everyone knows of the Ice Bucket Challenge, the viral craze that swept the nation in summer 2014, too few know the truly inspirational story behind it.
Pete Frates was a man at war with his own body, a man whose love for others was unshakable. He was a man who refused to fight alone and, in so doing, mobilized a global army to combat one of the most devastating diseases on earth: ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease. When the disease crippled Frates, the former Boston College baseball star turned tragedy into inspiration.
Pete's story is a testament to the power of love, the steadfastness of family, the generosity of strangers, and the compassion of crowds.
