This is a fun, free event --- catering to those in kindergarten to grade 5. Come have some fun, take the ice bucket challenge --- and help us promote awareness of Pete's story and support ALS research.

Pete Frates is the 30-year-old former Boston College Division 1 athlete, and creator of the world famous Ice Bucket Challenge, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2012. Pete established the FrateTrain ALS Research & Support Fund to provide funding for targeted ALS research and to help support those afflicted with ALS who have not been as fortunate to receive the support he has. ALS research received tremendous recognition over summer 2014 through the widespread “Ice Bucket Challenge.” 

Its purpose was to promote awareness of the disease and to encourage donations to research, the cause received an outpouring of support. With the support of countless celebrities including Jimmy Fallon, Matt Damon, and Taylor Swift, the “Ice Bucket Challenge” was a tremendous success; raising millions of dollars to help find treatments and a cure, as well as raising awareness worldwide about this tragic disease. Team Frate Train is asking you to take the ice bucket challenge with us on June 12th!
