Christopher Dailey was an active and spirited 8 year old “boy next door,” a third grade student at Dorothy Nolan Elementary School, and the beloved son of Mark and Maria Dailey of Wilton, NY. On November 23, 2001, the day after Thanksgiving, Christopher died suddenly in the hospital. His sudden and tragic departure left a devastating void not only in his family, but also with his playmates, friends, neighbors and fellow students.

Within weeks after Chris' passing, members of Chris’ family and some close friends reflected on how to make something positive out of such a heartbreaking turn of events. A foundation was established with a goal to build a lasting and living memory of Christopher through the construction of a youth recreational facility somewhere in the Greater Saratoga Area. The stipulations were simple: To enrich the children of our community with a place to play, learn and enhance their lives through team and individual sports activities in a facility that bears his name.

The Christopher Dailey Foundation, is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization.

The Foundation's Non-profit Tax I.D.# is 26-0000936

  In order to alleviate the overcrowding of available gym space in the Greater Saratoga Area, and to add much needed space for youth based recreational activities, the Foundation decided upon constructing a gym and donating it to a local municipality.
