HELPING KIDS THRIVE

The Dan Kelly (DK4) Foundation is committed to providing athletic opportunities for children of all ages and diverse backgrounds guided by the belief that everyone is an athlete. We know that sports can harness the power in kids by building character, teaching perseverance and teamwork, providing peer relationships and a healthy outlet to the everyday stressors that kids face in the world today.
 

The foundation was established to provide athletic opportunities through the funding of athletic camps, tournaments, coaching and friendly community competitions. We provide positive social experiences that foster the development of skills needed for responsible citizenship. We are committed to getting kids off the couch and moving their feet while dancing to their own tune. We aim to encourage and support kids by getting them in the game.

About Dan

WebsiteCollage.png

The legacy of Dan Kelly can be found in the way he lived. A man of great wit, wisdom, and heart, his actions were lessons for others. Among them: Family first, work hard, really hard, but don't forget to dance a little, especially if you own a pair of white bucks. Get a dog. Take out the trash. Learn to skate. Give someone a second chance. Fairness matters. There's always time for a friend and a Guinness. Shop local and love your neighbors. Always have a sense of humor. If you are sick keep fighting like hell.
 
A consummate friend, mentor, and storyteller, Dan coached and volunteered in the community for decades, spending his life connecting people to possibilities, especially children. Maybe it was an encouraging word, a funny story, a pat on the back. Dan was always inviting someone to do something beyond what they thought was possible, helping them thrive.

Testimonials

Dan Kerr

Basketball Coach

Thank you to the Dan Kelly Foundation for providing jerseys to the girl’s pickup basketball league last summer.  Having reversible jerseys filled our need and allowed the coaches to mix and match teams each week based on players skills and development.  With the foundations help we were able to provide each girl with a chance to improve and have some fun.  Overall, it was a great experience for everyone involved.  Thanks for all your support, I know Dan would be happy seeing the girls out there playing.
