When former football superstar Reggie White passed away suddenly and prematurely at age 43, due in part to obstructive sleep apnea, we all knew that we had lost a special man, humanitarian, and dedicated family man.

His legacy lives on through the many good works pursued by his wife, Sara, and their children, Jeremy and Jecolia.  So I, as executive director of the Reggie White Sleep Disorders Research and Education Foundation, was not all surprised when Sara offered us the opportunity to raise money for the Foundation in a special way.

Reggie was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame posthumously in 2006.  As is true of all inductees, a special limited edition cap was produced in honor of the event.  In Reggie’s case, however, the design was not created by a cap company, but by Sara.  And, of course, once they’re gone, they are gone forever.

Thanks to Sara, the Foundation now has a limited number of these special caps to sell as a fundraiser.  You can see and order the cap by visiting the Foundation’s site and clicking on “Support Us.”

Your help will contribute to the Foundation’s efforts to help people with sleep apnea whose socio-economic status would prevent them from getting the healthcare services they need.  That’s our Mission.  And we’re proud to carry it out in Reggie’s memory.
