IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR SUBMISSION
By submitting your team's description and image, you acknowledge:
My name is Tom Daley, and five years ago, I watched my five-month old daughter, Shannon, die in front of me due to a rare form of heart disease.
Following the anniversary of Shannon's death, I was approached by the commissioner of the Readington Basketball League. Apparently there were a number of my neighbors and area residents who had expressed an interest in creating a charity named in memory of Shannon.
I agreed, and that is how my team got its start.
It began with a fund-raising basketball game at Hunterdon Central High School. We faced off against a group of former NBA players who graciously volunteered their time, and all proceeds from the event benefited two seriously ill children we were able to identify. The Shannon Daley Memorial Fund was soon created.
Today, our organization is devoted to assisting seriously ill children and their families in financial need. Our fund-raising basketball game has become an annual event, and a summer golf outing has been created to raise additional funds. To date, we have provided more than $250,000 to the families of 10 local children who continue the fight of their lives.
Our team is comprised of approximately 70 men who volunteer their time and energies to the Shannon Daley Memorial Fund. Our sole goal is to support the less fortunate families of children suffering with illness.
It deeply touches my family that such good continues to be done in Shannon's name.
Tom Daley, President
Shannon Daley Memorial Fund
