Muhammad Ali's legendary presence made him a natural ambassador for the Kentucky center bearing his name. Now his family and friends hope his absence won't stop fans from opening their checkbooks to support his legacy.

Ali's death in June left the Muhammad Ali Center in his hometown of Louisville without its co-founder and guiding force.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer says the question now is what will happen.

Ali Center officials have responded with an ambitious fundraising campaign, starting off with a goal of $10 million.

They hope to expand the center's mission with new initiatives and outreach to promote peace, social justice and personal growth.
