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 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This book is truly amazing and shows how [Frates] created a viral phenomenon that, even now, is raising awareness of ALS.” Elizabeth Banks, actor and director
“This isn’t just the story of Pete Frates’ great courage, spirit, and heart. It is a story of a young man who refused to let ALS stop him from changing the world, and brought the world together in the process!” Mike Lupica, New York Daily News
“It would seem impossible to capture all the things Pete Frates means to the world, as a person and as a champion in the fight against ALS. Somehow, this book manages to do just that!” Matt Ryan, 2016 NFL MVP
