Shannon Daley Memorial Fund
Since 2002, we have been helping families in and around Readington Township, NJ overcome childhood illness.
The Shannon Daley Memorial Fund was founded on the idea of service and assistance- we seek to help residents local to Readington Township who are facing financial difficulties due to a child facing serious illness.
Who We Help: Meet Thomas May
Thomas was found by the Shannon Daley Memorial Fund in 2007, when he was just a little over a year old. Thomas was born with spina bifida, a birth defect which can cause paralysis, orthopedic issues, and hydrocephalus. It’s been more than 10 years since the Shannon Daley Memorial Fund started helping the May family with Thomas’ medical bills, which has allowed Thomas to bravely go through a host of surgeries to help his conditions. He now has enough mobility to even play in golf camps! Keep up the hard work Thomas!
Helping Families Since 2007
Since being established in January 2002, we have raised and distributed over $2.9 million to more than 90 children and their families. This has been accomplished by the support and generosity of the many businesses and individuals in our community who believe that they can make a difference in somebody’s life.
The Shannon Daley Memorial Fund was established in January 2002. It is managed by members of the Readington New Jersey Men’s Basketball League. The Charity honors the memory of a league member’s infant daughter who died of a rare heart disease.
We are an event driven charity; we have a charity basketball game in the winter and golf outing in the summer. We are a strictly volunteer organization where 100% of the money raised less basic event costs is donated to the recipient families. We believe that we are making a difference one family at a time.
