On May 5th, we held our inaugural SOCCER FOR SARC event to raise awareness and funds for Sarcoidosis research. 100% of donations went to the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research (FSR) for patient assistance and research.
On behalf of the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research, let me say “THANK-YOU” for the outpouring of support and generosity from all of you “sarccer” players and supporters for making our “Inaugural” Soccer for Sarc Tournament a huge success.
Also, a great big Thank-you shout out goes out to Naperville Yard Indoor Sports Complex for donating field time at their beautiful new facility and to Meijer Stores for donating balls. If you happen to be back there, please make it a point to tell them “thanks.”
We had over 50 players and supporters and we raised over $3,240 that will go toward continuing the search for a cure to this horrible disease that so few people have even heard of. Wow! Well done everyone!
I’m not eloquent enough to put into words how appreciative I am for the support my soccer mates have given me over the last 5+ years. My wife commented that I am truly blessed to be surrounded by so many great soccer friends. I couldn’t agree more as I have the best support group of any patient I know.
If you missed participating in your first ever Sarccer Tournament, I hope you will join us next year for our 2nd Annual Soccer for Sarc tourney. We promise to have some interesting surprises. And we’re always looking for ideas on how we can improve the event, so just let me know.
See you on the pitch.
