* 44mb File * PORTSMOUTH, Va. - A 5th District Coast Guard member in the Hampton Roads area held the 2nd annual Taylor Hayes Memorial Golf Tournament at the Sleepy Hole Golf Course in Suffolk, Va., in memory of his daughter on Apr. 9, 2010. Lt. Greg Hayes' 16-year-old daughter was killed in an auto accident in May 2008 and he began a memorial tournament to promote seatbelt safety and it raises money for a Western Branch High School Scholarship. The Taylor Hayes Memorial Scholarship Fund provides an annual $500 scholarship to a Western Branch High School drama student. Last year money was raised to provide six years worth of scholarships to deserving students. This year special proceeds will be presented to the Ryan Poteet Medical Trust Fund to assist Ryan's family with medical bills. Ryan suffers from Hajdu-Cheney Syndrom, a debilitating bone disease. He is a 17-year-old boy and has had at least 17 major surgeries to fight this disease. Taylor would have been in Ryan's 2011 graduating class. Golf is one of the only sports he can play with this disease. (U.S. Coast Guard video by Petty Officer 2nd Class Andrew Kendrick)
