About Boston

Eric Engdahl

Eric Engdahl, of Powerhouse Capital and the Boston Securities Traders' Association, lost his mother Sheila to ALS in 2009. Since then, Eric has been passionate about raising funds for a treatment for this insidious disease. As founder of the ALS Warriors of Wall Street, Eric and the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) are pleased to offer the Boston financial community a chance to give back to ALS.

Pete Frates

Pete Frates was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 27. The former Captain of the Boston College baseball team, Pete even hit a home run over the wall at historic Fenway Park. Upon his diagnosis, Pete said "It became abundantly clear that my calling was to raise ALS awareness and to fight for a brighter future for all those affected today and those yet to come." Never one to set aside a challenge, Pete certainly did change the world of ALS. One of the originators of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Pete helped make millions of people aware of ALS, while helping to raise over $100M for ALS organizations. Pete has appeared on numerous national televisions shows, and this year ESPN will debut its documentary about him, having followed Pete for the last two years. Pete and his wife Julie welcomed their daughter Lucy this past August.
