For the 2018 season West Hartford Youth Field Hockey will be supporting Ellie Brown and her Team “Ellie’s Entourage” for the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation Ride/Walk.
Our friend, teammate, ref, coach, player extraordinaire and 2018 Conard High School field hockey captain, Ellie Brown, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in early July 2018
Ellie has been a player, an official, volunteered to help coach our teams, and for the past few years volunteered her time to create Instructional Field Hockey Videos for WHYFH coaches and players. She has embodied the league’s philosophy of girls developing a love for the game of field hockey while also learning the value of sportsmanship. She truly has supported the WHYFH League in every way possible.
Ellie has shown nothing but poise, resilience, and positivity throughout her recent battle.
As a League, we want to show her how much we appreciate her and support her in this fight.
We will be collecting donations at WHYFH Games on Sunday, September 23rd.
