The recreational field was built in the community of Talat in Fayoum, Egypt, and will benefit approximately 1,200 children and youth in the area.
The LF family would like to give a special congratulations to Alfredo Axtmayer on this big day as he gets married to Hilary Gerson!
A co-founder of LF, Alfredo was a college soccer teammate of LF co-founder and current C.E.O. Drew Chafetz. Alfredo and Drew embarked on an amazing journey down to Guatemala in May, 2007 where the duo oversaw the execution of three community soccer field projects over a seven month period.
LF was on its way and the rest was history.
Alfredo was a "natural soccer leader" both on and off the field -- with a deep appreciation for the game and ability to communicate with and empower locals to lead. He also drafted the first version of the LF methodology of community engagement. This document continues to guide the organization as we discover new spaces and communities to empower through soccer.
Nowadays, Alfredo sits on the board of LF and recently founded his own non-profit called Remission Ball. A recent cancer survivor, Alfredo's organization promotes healing and comfort through sport to other fellow cancer patients.
Alfredo, thanks for being there from the beginning and congratulations on this new chapter in life.
The LF family.
