Please Consider Donating

Since I started up Gridiron New Jersey 15 years ago, I've been bombarded with compliments and suggestions.  They include statements such as:

"Thanks for everything you do for the New Jersey high school football community."

"You provide such a great service."

"You should charge visitors to use your site."

I'm grateful for all of the kind words directed towards the website, and with that in mind, now I'm going to ask for something in return.

Please consider making a 100% tax deductible donation to the Miracle Walk, which benefits the St. Barnabas Medical Center NICU.  Why the Miracle Walk?  Here's my story:

In late December of 2013, my wife and I were faced with the harsh reality that our son was arriving into the world a full 3 months early.

When Jason was born, he weighed 2 pounds, 11 ounces, and spent the first 9 weeks of his life in intensive care at the St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston.  There's no other way to put it: the doctors and nurses at St. Barnabas' Neonatal Intensive Care Unit saved his life.

Not a single day goes by that Nancy and I don't think about not only the amazing care Jason received, but how incredible everyone in the NICU was when it came to helping us deal with the scariest and most uncertain time of our lives.

This Sunday, October 8, 2017, Nancy, Jason and I will be participating in the Miracle Walk to benefit the St. Barnabas Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.  Please consider supporting our team -- the J-Walkers -- so we can help the people who saved our son's life.

Again, all donations are 100% tax deductible.  Please use the link below.

Thank you for taking the time to hear me out, and enjoy the rest of high school football season.
