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.
