About the Freddy Fund
The mission of the Freddy Fund is to honor the life of the late Federico "Freddy" Garcia by building a community-based, memorial soccer field in the Dallas neighborhood where he was born and raised. The Freddy Field will allow opportunities for future Dallas generations to share in the same game that helped shape the extraordinary character of an amazing young man, while providing a safe playing environment and promoting healthy, active lifestyles for children in the Maple Lawn Community.
