     The Beckie’s have long been associated with soccer and it has been on this stage where they have been truly blessed with opportunities to play professionally and internationally. 

Drew, the only son of Sheila and the late Gary Beckie has seen many successes throughout his athletic career. During his tenure as a student-athlete at the University of Denver, he caught the eye of the MLS and was drafted by the Columbus Crew. His professional soccer career has spanned several clubs including the Ottawa Fury, Carolina F.C, and most recently the Jacksonville Armada. Most recently he was in Finland considering an offer to play overseas.

As outstanding as his performance has been on the field it has been off the field where Drew has had a significant impact in his community and more. Due to the loss of his father to cancer when Drew was eleven, Drew felt called to start a program called - "W.I.N.G.S.". Walking in Griefs Shadow is a non-profit organization which assists children and young adults with the tragic loss of a parent.  His selfless efforts were recognized by the N.A.S.L in which he received the 2015 Humanitarian Award. Through these efforts, Drew has inspired many of us as a teammate, a friend, and a brother.

     This past November after training for a couple of weeks with a Finnish first division team and a trip over to Sweden, Drew unexpectedly suffered symptoms that resulted in a sudden trip to a Swedish emergency room and subsequent hospitalization. After numerous medical tests, it was determined that he had contracted a serious virus that will require several months (6-8) of recovery. Unfortunately, being between soccer contracts Drew was not covered by medical insurance which may have assisted with some of the extensive medical expenses he incurred overseas.  While his travel insurance will cover a small portion of his expenses,  it does not cover all and he will continue to have medical expenses here in the US as he works through the recovery process.

      First and foremost, we are asking for your prayers for a full and speedy recovery for Drew. His impact on others as been great and we pray that he will continue to have many opportunities to be a witness on and off the field. 

Thank you for considering a donation towards his medical expenses. We are truly thankful for your support, prayers and friendship to the Beckie family and most significantly, Drew.
