San Francisco, CA 2017

Team Dragons

Hi from Bay Area Asian Sports!

We are participating in the 2017 "Get Your Rear in Gear" benefitting the Colon Cancer Coalition in memory of Matty. We would love your support and the funds raised will go towards helping with early detection, prevention and treatment for this awful disease.

Madison "Matty" Won, Dragons Co-Founder, Executive Director and Coach, primary catalyst in instituting the Dragons basketball organization passed away in April 2008.  Matty put forth tremendous passion and energy in developing and teaching youth basketball and promoting the Dragons organization.  He lent his leadership skills, charisma and heart to others so others could experience the elation he held for the game.  Matty realized the need for an organization that could absorb Asian youths desiring to participate in this club atmosphere.  In the year 2000, the Dragons started with seven teams and expanded to over 30 teams under his guidance.

Matty's love of the game was displayed by his coaching and practicing multiple teams, watching games of various Dragons teams, daily visits during our youth summer league and conversing with everyone about the bliss of the game.

Unfortunately Matty passed away from Colon Cancer in April 2008.  Matty is missed deeply but the memory of him is everlasting. For every basket that drops through the net, the unbridled laughter, shared camaraderie and unequivocal delight that vibrates through our universe will somehow, someway find their way to Matty and he will find his way back to us.

Thank you and with much love!

Cassandra / Team Captain
