From the man who started the ice bucket challenge...

                                             This really cute kitty wants you to watch this video.
     (Click the blue link below)

Click the link above - it's an awesome AWESOME video shown on ABC News about Pete Frates. He's the guy who started the ice bucket challenge.

This brought tears to my eyes on a personal level as I watched Pete's personal home care attendant pick him up out of bed, as I watched his dad tie his tie.

It reminds me of us and the trajectory we're on.

It also brought happy tears to my eyes and filled my heart (is that too sappy!?  Can I be too sappy talking about this stuff?!!) when I saw the very first ice bucket challenge and the amazing involvement of so many people.

In my last post, I questioned whether the ice bucket challenge created awareness.

Watching this video makes me realize it DID promote awareness, it raised much needed money.

Many - most - folks won't know the specifics.  And maybe they don't need to, as long as it's somewhere on the radar,
