Snowboarder Mia Brookes from Sandbach, England has been awarded the 2nd Ellie Souter Foundation sponsorship. A year after Ellie’s passing, Mia will now receive sponsorship from the foundation set up by her family to fundraise under Ellie’s name for young winter athletes that need financial assistance to “achieve their potential and dreams, in much the same way as Ellie had looked for your help.”
Statement from Ellie Souter Foundation. As a fitting tribute to Ellie today we decided to announce the second athlete we will sponsor – Mia Brookes.
Mia Brookes is from Cheshire – a 12 year old snowboarder in the GB Park and Pipe Snowboarding Squad. The Ellie Soutter Foundation are sponsoring her for her trip to train in Austria later this year.
