The Freelon ALS Fund and friends invite you to the Design a World Without ALS Benefit Concert. This event is part of our campaign to raise $250,000.00 to benefit ALS research. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a neuromuscular disorder with no known cure because it is “underfunded.” The dollars raised will support critical research at the Duke ALS clinic headed by Dr. Richard Bedlack, who states, We share the Freelon's goal of designing a world without ALS.  We believe this goal can and will be accomplished through research.  The more funding we have now, the faster we will get answers from our existing research projects.”

The event will celebrate the life of Durham-based architect, educator, and business leader Phil Freelon who was diagnosed with ALS last year. Phil led the planning and design team for the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.  Phil Freelon’s projects include the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture in Charlotte and Emancipation Park in Houston.

Bringing great design to public spaces has long been a hallmark of Freelon’s practice.  Always the design thinker, Freelon is now focusing his creative energy on the challenge of increasing ALS research funding. Phil says, “As designers, we think of problems as opportunities for the exploration of creative solutions. Our hope is that the funds raised during this campaign will enable new and on-going initiatives at the Duke ALS Center.”
