Peter Frates, the co-founder of the Ice Bucket Challenge left us today. I’ve heard many complaints about how the money raised by the Ice Bucket Challenge was not use effectively; however, I think that any attention and financial support brought to the ALS cause is a win! Peter not only helped fund the challenge, he also participated in it as a pALS! We should all be grateful for the attention that the Ice Bucket Challenge brought to ALS. https://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2019/12/09/Peter-Frates-ALS-Ice-Bucket-Challenge-co-founder-dies-at-34/3821575924780/
If you were diagnosed with ALS after 2014, did you know what ALS was? Did the media attention surrounding the Ice Bucket Challenge bring ALS to your attention? Did you participate in the challenge?
