The Chris Maloney Legacy Foundation is a registered 501c3 charitable organization. Sustainability will allow the organization to direct funds and support to a variety of programs that look to prevent addiction in unique and helpful ways. Finding avenues to strengthen character in our youth, providing for stronger and longer lasting support systems within our communities, and creating effective and truthful education are current focus points.
The mission of the Chris Maloney Legacy Foundation is to raise awareness of the growing issues surrounding addiction. Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Assisting in the prevention of addiction is our long term target, along the way we hope to support in the treatment of this disease as well.
The short term goal is to celebrate a beautiful life lost to this disease. These initial event funds will build the base for long term efforts to serve our community on a perpetual basis. Subsequent golf tournaments and various other events will further support our mission.
