BENEFITTING THE PETER FRATES FAMILY FOUNDATION
'Strike Out', is our spring giving blend that supports The Peter Frates Family Foundation, who's mission is to assist progressed ALS patients and their families with the overwhelming cost of home health care.
Peter Frates is the man who inspired the Ice Bucket Challenge, which raised over $115 million dollars towards "striking out ALS", in the form of ALS research and treatments, and dramatically accelerated the fight against ALS. Very little of the money raised went to the actual care of patients, so The Peter Family Foundation was created in support of the tens of thousands of patients living with ALS today.
Pete grew up in Beverly, attended St. John’s Preparatory School ’03 and Boston College ’07. At Boston College he played for the BC Baseball team becoming their Captain in his senior year. After college, he went to Hamburg, Germany to play baseball in the German Baseball League while coaching German youth on the sport.
This is a grant-based foundation that will help ALS patients live at home, close to their loved ones, in as comfortable an environment as possible. Donations help ALS patients like Pete live as long as possible with their loved ones.
For every 12 oz bag of Strike Out sold, $2 will be donated to The Peter Frates Family Foundation.
