Thank you for visiting this website dedicated to the memory of our son, Dylan Hockley, who died alongside his friends and teachers in the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.
The support our family has received from around the world is amazing and has given us strength as well as an overwhelming desire to help others. Dylan was autistic and we saw how much progress he was making with the support of his school and additional services. Therefore this fund has been created to help children with autism and special needs. We are committed to making a positive change and help more children achieve their fullest potential and lead fulfilling lives.
On this site you can learn more about how to donate, do fundraising or take part in a sponsored event. You can also view pictures and videos of Dylan and fundraising events, leave comments and read press releases.
Through supporting the Dylan Hockley Memorial Fund, his legacy will continue to live on and touch the lives of many others. Thank you so much.
- Nicole & Ian Hockley

Dylan's autism was first diagnosed while we lived in England. We want to encourage fundraising in the UK to help other families there dealing with the challenges that autism can bring. To this end we would encourage UK supporters to donate to the National Autistic Society.
The National Autistic Society is the UK's leading charity for people with autism and their families. Founded in 1962, it continues to spearhead national and international initiatives and provide a strong voice for all people with autism. The NAS provides a wide range of services to help people with autism and Asperger syndrome live their lives with as much independence as possible.
Please follow this link to Just Giving where you can learn more about the NAS and make a donation to them in memory of Dylan. Thank you for supporting this cause.
