Peter Frates is a 28 year old former Division 1 college athlete and Captain of Boston College Baseball who was recently diagnosed with ALS. The fact that he has 100 friends running The Harpoon 5-Miler this year shows what a great guy he his, and what an inspiration he is with his work to not only battle the disease, but also to bring more attention to the urgent need for more research.
He and his family run a website (http://www.petefrates.com) for people supporting Pete and the entire Frates/D’Alfonso family to stay up to date on the latest news, upcoming events and updates on Pete’s progress. Please be sure to visit Pete’s video blog! Spend some time on their website learning more about Pete and his family, his personal accounts of his day to day battle with ALS and all of the amazing events and fundraisers they participate in to #StrikeoutALS.
