Daniel Ayala Memorial Scholarship Fund

This fundraiser is to raise money to start  a Memorial Scholarship Fund in honor of my brother Daniel R. Ayala.  Danny loved being outdoors.  He enjoyed hiking, rock climbing, and mountain bikes.  Danny would light up a room with his smile, he had many friends.  He always helped others whether he knew them or not.  He was a great mechanic and would often help fix cars for people for little to nothing in return.  Danny was taken from us suddenly and too soon.  He leaves behind two children who carry on his legacy.

In honor of Danny, a scholarship fund is being created to carry on his legacy of helping others to learn the art of Jiu Jitsu.  With this scholarship, individuals can explore Jiu Jitsu through classes, training, and tournaments.  Applications and awards to be determined once the scholarship is funded.

I am asking you to help keep Danny's legacy alive and donate what you can towards the Daniel Ayala Memorial Scholarship Fund.  Help me continue to help others the way Danny did when he was with us.  If you are unable to donate, please help us by sharing this fundraiser with your friends and family.  

Thank you and God bless.

You will never be forgotten!!
