Elliot Paul Richoux left us at the young age of 21 with a love of the game that would rival anyone. He believed in life's ability to lift you up, and Elly's Kids will be an organization that helps lift young ball players lacking the financial means up to the plate.
Elliot left us far too soon in a tragic accident. In the previous six months he dedicated his life to the Banditos youth baseball team, coaching a group of kids who he loved and respected. Elliot wanted nothing more than to be the inspiration and the guiding light for these kids - and he always knew which kids needed his attention more than others.
While Elliot is no longer with us, his spirit can live on in the hearts and souls of the youth that love baseball, but may not have the funds to realize their dream. Elliot would want to lift these kids up in any way he could, and in honor of his memory we want to carry on his passion and drive by starting a foundation aimed at mentoring and financing the players who need it the most.
Elly's Kids will work to provide travel expenses, accommodations, and any equipment required for their position. It will provide a support network like no other - with experienced ball players as mentors making sure Elly's Kids are never led astray, and always hold onto the love of the game. Without fail, this will be an organization built around love and support.
100% of all proceeds go to the kids. Join the cause on Facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/EllysKidsBaseball
