U13 Blue Honors Family Friend and Supports Their New Charity

On July 18, 2014 our very close family friends, Tonya and Paul Elias, lost their 10 1/2 yr old daughter, Brookelyn Elias, in a tragic accident.

Brookelyn was a lovely girl who was close in age with our daughter Kayla (who is on the Echo U13 Blue team) and loved soccer very much too. She had recently been invited to play for the U11 Grand Rapids Crew team.

In her memory the Elias family is collecting soccer items (eg, shin guards, clothes, shoes etc) and donations for soccer scholarships in her name for underprivileged children. $75.00 will provide a child with the opportunity to play soccer.

Therefore, the Echo U13 Blue girls have volunteered to collect items and donations to honor her memory. Additionally, they will be wearing Brookelyn's Crew number, #9, on their socks during the upcoming GR Crew tournament Aug 23-24.

We would be so grateful to any other teams that might be interested in contributing any soccer items (used is fine!) or donations as well!

Please contact us at 574-217-2067 (Michelle) or 574-217-2028 (Jim).

Thank you so much,
Michelle and Jim Leady
