John Bieniewicz died on July 1st, 2014 at the age of 44 after suffering an injury from an assault while refereeing a soccer game.  John will never be forgotten.


While we don’t have any long-term vision of this foundation yet, our initial thought is to do something to help his family and perhaps someday for other families.


We are selling these wristbands for $10 – 100% of the profits will go to the foundation.  It’s about making a statement that this will not be tolerated any longer and that we will never forget John.


The red and yellow symbolizes the cards in the game of soccer as a caution to remember to play within the rules.  In the end, it is only a game …a beautiful game.
