In memory of Elle Campbell Howdershell

Hi Everyone, this is Halle Howdershell and I'm Elle's older sister. This October 12th is the 7 year anniversary of Elle's passing. Elle passed away from a brain tumor at the age of 11, on October 12th, 2013. Elle was such a great person with an extraordinary soul. She was a force to be reckoned with and brought so much light into many people's lives. This year I would like to honor my sister by raising money to be donated to the Make a Wish Foundation. The Make a Wish Foundation is a charity that is close to my heart. Before Elle passed away she was granted a wish and she wished to get a customized pink bike (It was so Elle!). It brought so much joy for her to have a bike that she could ride! Elle had lost motor function on her right side and therefore had a hard time with many things. This bike was equipped so she could be able to ride it normally. I would like to raise money in honor of Elle to give other kids a once in a life time opportunity to make a wish.  I understand that times right now are hard and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me. Elle's legacy lives on!

With much love,
Halle Howdershell
