THE ELLIE SOUTTER FOUNDATION
Following the tragic death of Ellie Soutter, a British team athlete and Ambassador for the resort of Les Gets, on the day of her 18th birthday, her family became involved in fundraising in memory of Ellie. The Foundation wishes to support promising athletes in winter sports, both financially and mentally, to help them reach their full potential and achieve their dreams.
In France, the Ellie Soutter Foundation is committed to raising awareness among all Portes du Soleil children about mental health, concussion issues and the implications of social media.
