The Frates ALS Research & Support Fund

The Frates ALS Research and Support Fund was recently founded by Pete and his family to provide funding for targeted ALS research and to help support those afflicted with ALS who have not been as fortunate to receive the support that Pete has. The Fund was created to carry on his and Team Frate Train's mission to raise awareness and assist in discovering a treatment and a cure for ALS.
