On 10/24/2017 our family was honored to be a part of the the creation of the football field at LifeTown and the dedication by the Jets and the United Way.  The day was magical as we watched Ryan run around giggling and beaming as he got to “play football” for the first time.  Sadly, Ryan passed away before the building was completed.

Now, four years later, on 11/26/2021 we are proud to announce the official naming of the field.  It is with extreme pride and deep gratitude to Toba and Zalman Grossbaum and the entire team at LifeTown that we are finally able to host the official naming of Ryan’s Field.

In addition, we are excited to announce a new program called the Football Circle, which will take place that day on the field.  Our youngest son, Jake, decided as his Bar Mitzvah project that he wanted to coordinate a new and exciting program on Ryan’s Field called Football Circle.  For this special event, friends from LifeTown will be able to participate in a fun program of football drills, non-contact fun play and enjoy time alongside members of Livingston’s Football Team.

Please join us as we officially “name” Ryan’s field.

Please join us as a participant or volunteer for the Football Circle.

Please join us as a community and take a moment to celebrate all of our blessings in life.

Please consider supporting Ryan’s Field and the Football Circle so we can ensure programs like this, with appropriate equipment, can continue to bring joy and allow people to Do Happy for years to come.

Thank you so much for continuing to support our family, for helping celebrate Ryan and for being part of this beautiful community..
