New Soccer Benches

New Soccer Benches

When you visit the Markdale Minor Soccer Complex you will see two shiny new team soccer benches donated by the Jordan Fawcett Memorial Fund. Jordan passed away in November 2010 and her parents, David and Debbie Fawcett, are pleased to see their daughter’s legacy live on in a sport she loved to play and within the Markdale Minor Soccer fields.

Jordan’s mom and dad said the inscription “To the moon and back!” represents Jordan’s love for the game, her enthusiasm, never give up attitude, and positive team spirit. “Jordan was the most enthusiastic cheerleader around, always encouraging her team.”

The Jordan Fawcett Memorial Fund is made possible thanks to the generosity of the community. The fund was created by the Fawcetts to sponsor local athletes to attend camps, and support sports related projects within the community such as the soccer benches. The fund resides with the Grey Highlands Community Fund under the umbrella of the Community Foundation Grey Bruce.
