"She believed she could, and so she did"
The Eliza Juliet Norton Foundation aims to continue Eliza's legacy by providing children with increased access to and enhanced experiences in athletics and beyond with a focus on teamwork, good sportsmanship, and community building.
Eliza was a fierce supporter of her friends, teammates, and classmates. We continue her mission to help children be confident individuals and to stand up for others. This goal is achieved through targeted programs and partnerships with school districts and national children's organizations.
Eliza was a bright, active girl with boundless energy, whose favorite place to be was on a rink, field, or monkey bars with her friends and teammates. Her foundation will work with communities to enable investment in spaces of play, including playgrounds, ball fields, and hockey rinks.
Eliza craved "the crunch of the ice" under her skates and was at her absolute happiest when playing ice hockey. Through this program, we are committed to promoting and expanding access to the game she loved for children and especially girls locally and nationwide.
