Foundation in slain football player's name to help needy children

A foundation established by the family of slain Pace University athlete Danroy "DJ" Henry is now joining a non-profit organization to help needy children in Massachusetts.

Henry was shot to death by police last October as he drove away from a disturbance at Finnegan's Grill in Thornwood.

Now, The DJ Dream Fund is working with Good Sports, which is an organization that provides sports equipment and athletic programs to disadvantaged youth.
