The St. Louis Cardinals foundation called Cardinals Care, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping kids is one that St. Louis is very proud of. Cardinals Care’s mission is to build baseball fields, support youth baseball teams, and help other children’s agencies. Cardinals Care began in 1997 giving kids the chance to enjoy life’s most precious sport….baseball. Children in the St. Louis community have benefited from Cardinals Care by the players, Cardinals ownership, Cardinals sponsors, and the many devoted Cardinals fans. Since its inception Cardinals Care has given over $18 million dollars to support children’s non-profit organizations, built 19 youth baseball fields and help disadvantaged youth in neighborhoods.

In Wisconsin, there is a research facility named after one of the greatest football players of all time. Reggie White was a two time NFL Defensive Player of the year, thirteen (13) time Pro Bowl and had a 2nd place record for career sack with 198.5! White was known for his ministry and being an ordained minister along with his involvement with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. White’s death in 2004 was a major hit to the sports industry. It was also a wakeup call to those living with sarcoidosis (including myself) and sleep apnea. Sleep apnea was attributed to White’s death thus beginning the foundation.
The Reggie White Foundation was created in 2006 by Ron Baake and Mark Stoiber in memory of Reggie White’s passing. When the Foundation was created, Reggie’s wife Sara was a key element. “When Sara came to visit us and discuss the concept, she was so personable” Ron Baake stated. Sara is a great speaker and supporter of the Foundation. It is a wonderful thing that Reggie is still helping people even after his passing…A sign of a true legend”.
The Reggie White Foundation keeps his legacy alive and makes sure to educate and conduct research to help others live lasting and longer lives. There are so many people that suffer from sleep disorders like sleep apnea that at times, it’s hard to recognize until it’s too late. This organization is making waves to make sure others have the knowledge to fight sleep disorders and get the help they need.
Mr. Ron Baake, the Executive Director for the Reggie White Foundation had this to say, “The Reggie White Sleep Disorders Foundation has been busy this year processing donated CPAP therapy equipment and supplies. We have helped more than 150 people so far in 2013 receive treatment for their sleep apnea who could not otherwise afforded it. We accept donations from all over the country and the donations are tax deductible”.
We salute you Ron, Mark, and Mrs. Sara White for helping others.

We know you are wondering where are the new posts you are used to getting???
The owner of Airades Public Relations, Sedaria Williams, lost her father on August 7, 2013. We took time away to allow the family a moment in time and patience to get through this ordeal. We send out our condolences as her father was a good husband, father, grandfather, and friend. His legacy will carry on.
We have furthermore been working on getting real time interviews with the professional athletes on their different charities and foundations. We hope to bring a new look and feel to the blog by speaking directly to the athletes. Watch out for the new look of the blog which will post on today.
We hope you still enjoy this website and we thank you for your support.
