In Memory of "Irish" Wayne Kelly

Thanks for visiting!


The IWK Memorial Foundation was established in 2012 to commemorate Wayne’s life as a former Vietnam Veteran, Boxer, Professional Boxing Referee, and a Physical Conditioning Specialist for the Town of Hempstead, NY. Our mission is to keep his memory alive by giving back to the community by providing financial support and volunteer work to those in need.
