A Passion for Soccer and Raising Awareness of ALS

Over the last decade, Tom Fraehmke, an successful New York architect has started a one-man campaign to raise awareness of ALS using his passion for soccer and his growing network in the soccer community. Kick ALS was formed in honor of his late wife, Marlene, who died in 2014 after a ten year battle with the disease.

"Kick ALS" has become Fraehmke's one-man advocacy campaign, leveraging his network within the world of soccer. His efforts have see ALS fundraising throughout New York, including one hosted by the New York Cosmos.

Fraehmke, who was recently in Baltimore, stopped by the Packard Center for a tour and meeting with Center director, Dr. Jeff Rothstein.
