Over the summer, people from more than 100 countries poured buckets of ice water over their heads in an effort to bring attention to ALS, a neurological disorder characterized by nerve degeneration, paralysis, and eventually death. In this video, Nancy Frates tells the story of her 29-year-old son, Pete, the man behind the movement that has raised $125 million to support the search for a cure.

“[Pete] said, ‘There will be no wallowing, people,’ ” his mother says. “He goes, ‘We’re not looking back; we’re looking forward. What an amazing opportunity we have to change the world.’ ”
