Quarterback Tom Brady became the latest New England sports athlete to join in remembering ALS fighter Pete Frates this week.

Frates passed away on Monday following a seven year battle with ALS, he was 34 years old.

In the years that followed his diagnosis, Frates became a key figure for helping raise awareness and money in an effort to find a cure for the disease.

Frates helped start the 2014 “Ice Bucket Challenge” viral videos which have brought in nearly $220 million dollars for ALS research since.

On Tuesday, Brady expressed his condolences in a reflection over Twitter.

“The only thing greater than his impact on ALS research was his impact on our community. Thank you for your strength and courage under the toughest circumstances. We lost a great soul yesterday, Rest In Peace, Pete.”

Frates loved his New England sports teams, especially the Patriots, in 2014 he celebrated his 30th birthday at Gillette Stadium, with 60,000 of his closest friends.
