“I am in search of something greater than I can imagine. I will not stop.” - Eloi Vasquez
Eloi was the most driven, hardworking, and resilient person I have ever met. He never stopped working, never stopped bettering himself, and he never let anything get in his way. He excelled at every aspect of his life. He was a bright student, devoted family member, and the best friend I could ever ask for.
But perhaps the most distinguishable characteristic about Eloi was his passion. Eloi’s passion for soccer was unparalleled, I’ve never seen anything like it. It touched and inspired everyone around him. To ensure Eloi’s passion for the game continues to make a lasting impact, the Vasquez-Margolin family and Marin FC have established a “Living for the Game” scholarship fund in his honor. The scholarship is awarded to a student-athlete that embodies Eloi’s dedication to family, mentorship abilities, strength of character, commitment to personal growth and academics, ability to inspire teammates, and passion for the game. The fund honors Eloi’s life and accomplishments, and helps future players, who may not otherwise have the opportunity, continue his legacy of excellence (details can be found here: http://www.eloirun.org/index-e…). It is primarily funded through the annual Eloi Vasquez Memorial Run and Walk which takes place in the Marin Headlands.
Unfortunately I start work on the East Coast before the run takes place this year. So, instead, I have decided to fundraise through my own run which I will do remotely. My goal is to run 15 miles. I’m asking people to donate as little as a dollar a mile in order to support the scholarship fund.
Eloi was my best friend and still is my biggest inspiration. His friendship and example shaped me into the person I am today, and I couldn’t be more grateful to have had him as such a big part of my life. Please help me keep his legacy alive and give someone else the opportunity to pursue their dreams.
