ALS is a disease many associate with New York Yankees great Lou Gehrig. After all amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. And as of today, there is no cure for the disease.

Peter Frates is a 29 year old former Division 1 college athlete as the Captain of Boston College Baseball who was recently diagnosed with ALS at the age of 27. His good friend began the ice bucket challenge as a way to raise awareness and hopefully some money to find the cure as well. Here is Pete’s story – and it’s one that’s worth every moment of watching.

As of August 18, 2014 the ALS Association has received $15.6 million in donations compared to $1.8 million during the same time period last year (July 29 to August 18). These donations have come from existing donors and 307,598 new donors to The Association. Unbelievable.
