Millions of people have been seen taking part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Peter Frates, a 29-year-old, who was diagnosed with the disease in 2012, came up with the idea of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in late July. Since that time, it has spread throughout the country, as people had to dunk ice water on their heads, or donate a $100.

Frates, who is expecting his first child soon with his wife, will be featured on “SC Featured” on SportsCenter at 10 am this morning. The former Boston College baseball player has helped ALS, also known as the Lou Gehrig’s disease, raise $4 million in the past several weeks.

Last year, the non-profit organization raised just $1 million for the entire year. With the challenge continuing, it will be a record-breaking fundraising effort for research.

“We have never seen anything like this in the history of the disease,” says Barbara Newhouse, president and chief executive of the association. “We couldn’t be more thrilled with the level of compassion, generosity, and sense of humor that people are exhibiting as they take part in this viral initiative.”
