Meet the people that have helped EHC Foundation to where we are today...
Billie Clark Shorten
Ellis's big sister Billie set up the foundation along with her closest friends and her parents after losing Ellis in 2008. The Ellis Harriet Clark Foundation was set up in order to allow Ellis's energy for life continue. Her enthusiasm was boundless and her spirit lives on throughout every event we organise. With this constantly in our hearts, our passion is genuine and we push for every penny raised, supporting the two chosen charities that were instrumental to Ellis's battle.
Sarah will be there whatever the occasion and she'll ensure the word has spread and the emails have been read. From bringing laughter to Ellis's days in hospital to bringing in the best of sponsors at EHCF events. She woos crowds with her ways and secures support with her smile.
The passion behind the pink, Nicola would never miss a hospital hang out with Ellis and this commitment continues, the pink finishing touches will all be down to Ms Dale...The dots on the i's and the crosses on the Ts are covered with Nicola on board. She will charm support from afar and she will be there from sunrise to sunset ready to remember Ellis and ensure our Events do her justice. A precious friend of Billie, Ellis and their parents.
Amy was the brains and brut force behind our very first, and rather hugely successful 'Ellis's Birthday Ball' in 2009. Not only a dear, loyal and much treasured friend of Billie, Ellis and their parents, she is the queen of organising. Her fab family are also invaluable to EHCF, from taking on roles at every event to fundraising throughout the years.
James Wright.. The man who can. James's talents are limitless, from designing cycling kits, to sorting signage, he's a tremendous ghost writer and a loyal, invaluable member to our team. James commits hours and hours to everything ECHF does... Once finished with the helping out, he'll then participate!
Amy is a friend of Billie's from university, responsible for getting her employers at the time Phones 4 u onboard to support the 2010 trek of Kilimanjaro. Amy has also ran marathons, completed a sky dive, and conquered Kilimanjaro herself to raise money for the EHC Foundation.
"Ellis' strength and grace in the face of adversity was an inspiration to us all. Climbing a mountain seems like nothing in comparison, and I was honoured to take part!"
