Publisher's Summary

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 the 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.
