The Mack Brady Memorial Men’s Soccer Fund at Penn State was established in memory of our son John William McKenzie “Mack” Brady who died unexpectedly from a blood infection on December 31, 2012, just 16 days short of his 9th birthday. Mack was passionate about his friends, family, and soccer. From the age of 5 he had decided he wanted to be a goalkeeper. His dream was to play for Penn State and to be the US Men’s National team goalkeeper.

If you would like to support the fund Memorial gifts may be made online at or by sending a check, payable to Penn State with “In memory of Mack Brady” in the memo line, to: Penn State University, One Old Main, University Park, PA 16802.

We cannot thank you all enough for the incredible support that we have received. As of November 1, 2013 the fund has over $200,000! That is incredibly humbling accomplishment. Our initial goal is to reach $300,000 by Mack’s 12th birthday, January 17, 2016.
