069: The Mom Leading the Ice Bucket Challenge
5 days ago
When Nancy Frates’ son, Pete, was diagnosed with ALS in 2012, she was confused. Pete was a 27-year-old athlete and the only people she’d ever known with this disease were elderly already. Ever since that life-changing moment, she and her family have found their sense of purpose in working tirelessly to raise awareness about ALS and to stimulate funding for research. Pete Frates inspired the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which quickly became a viral fundraising phenomenon. Nancy talks to us about her family, the ways her own life has changed, and how the Ice Bucket Challenge was able to raise well over 200 million dollars.
