ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Co-Founder Passes At 27

Corey Griffin a co-founder of the ALS Ice bucket challenge passed away over the weekend at the age of 27. Corey drowned in a diving accident leaving from a building located on Straight Wharf into the water off the coast of Nantucket, Mass.

“He threw himself behind a lot of causes. Way more so than anyone, you know, of our generation. And just put his heart and soul behind these things. He did it for Boston Children’s Hospital. He has been doing it more recently for ALS,” – – Michael Greeley.

“He was the happiest guy in the world, He called me last night and told me he was in paradise.” – Corey’s father, Robert Griffin

“Team FrateTrain lost a good friend today, Corey Griffin. Helping out was nothing new for Griff. He held his own event for me back in 2012, just a few months after diagnosis. He worked his butt off these last few weeks for ALS. We texted everyday, planning and scheming ways to raise funds and plan events.”

Sources say Griffin helped raise $100,000 at a fundraiser for ALS earlier that night.
