Patrick Grange - ALS Memorial Foundation

A Community Powering ALS Research

Patrick was an accomplished soccer player who lost his life to this tragic disease way too early – help us help others avoid the same fate.

Pat's Story

Our mission is to support ALS research related to sport.

Like many soccer players, throughout Pat's youth, college and semi-pro career he often headed the ball.  He was diagnosed with ALS at 28yrs old — Lou Gehrig's disease — and in 2012, at 29, he died.  

When researchers examined his brain they found surprising evidence that could have long-term implications for soccer.

Why us

This mission is personal

Everyone on our team was close with Pat, and we'll never forget him. This is a lifelong mission for all of us.
