Giving Back to the Family of Leland Fay

A Wonderful Day of Golf and Raising Funds

Dawg Nation had the pleasure of supporting the Leland Fay Memorial Golf Tournament. Anyone there could be a witness to how much Leland meant to his family, friends, and community. Max Wright and team provided incredible local leadership and rallied the Colorado Springs community to help Leland’s widow, Sarah Fay and their boys. Together we were able to raise $42,000! More importantly the community was able to remind the Fay family that they are loved and cared for! Special thanks to former Av Brett Clark and NHL Hall of Famer Michel Goulet for their help in rallying around the Fay family!

An Eight Year Battle

Leland Fay passed away on Memorial Day after an eight year battle with brain tumors. Leland was originally diagnosed with 98 brain tumors and additional tumors in his stomach, lungs, liver, neck and head. He was told he had six months to live and fought for eight years to watch his boys grow. He holds the record for the most brain tumors, a record no one wants to hold. He fought courageously and with a sense of humor.

Extensive Medical Bills

Connor (15) and Derek (12) play travel hockey at Colorado Rampage in Monument. In February, Connor broke his tibia and fibula at a hockey tournament in Minnesota. He had surgery to repair his leg and has been working hard so he can get back on the ice. Sarah works in real estate. The Fay’s medical expenses for the last eight years for Leland and then Connor’s leg this year have been extensive. They are an amazing and selfless family who have helped so many others. Now is the time to help this family in their time of need.

    I worked with Leland closely. I learned so much from him, and will always remember his incredibly positive attitude in the midst of all he was facing. He had a tremendous impact on my life, and helped me grow as a believer of God, a leader, and as a man. We are praying for your family in this difficult time.

  7. Mike,
    I ran the “Fay Family Friends” on Facebook ( for Leland, Sarah and the boys – we started fundraisers for them in 2012. That page is still up – I wasn’t aware of the upcoming Golf Tournament – I ran one for them several years ago. I have a pretty extensive golf distribution circle, if you’ll send me the information, I’ll not only post it on the web page, but will also send it out to the golf group associated with Lockheed Martin, where Leland and I both worked together.
    I checked the link above and other than the date, I didn’t see any additional information.
    Thanks, — P.J. Evans
