    In loving memory of the man, the myth, the legend, Joe Falcone. We want to raise funds for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS).

    The ARDS Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting patients and families faced with the horrific diagnosis of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). As per the ARDS Foundation: 200,000 Americans each year are diagnosed with ARDS, anywhere from 35% to almost 50% of those diagnosed do not survive. They are dedicated to increasing awareness about this little known syndrome; too many people are unaware of this deadly syndrome that strikes without warning, suddenly and quickly. Increasing public awareness is instrumental in raising funds for the ARDS foundation to continue to support this community vigorously. ARDS Foundation also partners with medical professions to facilitate research projects.

    Family and friends will gather on October 10, 2020, to host a Sandlot game in Joe’s honor, just like old times.

    Precautions that range beyond the scope of the current COVID guidelines in New York will be in place to ensure a safe and enjoyable environment for all players and spectators. ARDS Global has generously donated branded masks for use during the game for all participants and guests.

    Please consider donating in memory of a special soul, a good man, and a great friend. Your funds will be used to help educate about ARDS, advocate for health care changes, and provide support for survivors of ARDS and their families – thank you for your generous support!
