Remembering Brother Fran

***UPDATED with details about how to donate to the Fran Crippen Elevation Foundation***

 

This weekend we lost our brother, and the co-founder of Elevation Athletics, Fran Crippen: the fierce athlete; the most loyal friend; and the truest of role models.  We ask that whether you knew Fran personally or not, you keep him and the Crippen family in your thoughts and prayers.

Fran lived the way we aim to be every day of our lives, and we are committed to doing everything we can to carry on his legacy.  Fran was passionate; he was determined; he cared deeply about others; and he loved and appreciated every day of his life.  With the tragic passing of Fran, we look to follow even more closely in his footsteps and challenge ourselves to be nothing but the best version of ourselves.

Fran was the heart and soul of our small team, and he believed deeply in providing others the opportunity to challenge themselves while helping causes he cared so much about.  While still coping with this tremendous loss, we look to honor and pay tribute to Fran in the way that he deserved.

 

Sincerely,

Ryan, Lee, and T.J.

 

FRAN CRIPPEN ELEVATION FOUNDATION

The family and friends of Fran are in the process of setting up the Fran Crippen Elevation Foundation. We will be posting more details as they come available, but the family is asking that, in lieu of flowers, any donations be sent to the Fran Crippen Elevation Foundation, 301 E. Eighth Ave., Conshohocken, Pa. 19428. We will be updating our own website to allow for online donations and will update you as soon as the option is available. Please consider donating to the foundation in Fran’s memory as we hope to honor Fran in the most appropriate manner. – EA Team

    The entire Virginia swimming family is standing in support of the Crippens and in honor of Fran. How very lucky so many of us are to have been in his company, and to have known what a great competitor, but more importantly, what a truly special person he was. God bless you guys as you work through your grief…I know it’s been an incredibly dark week. Hoping we can all share hugs and memories in PA this weekend.
    Love,
    Dana Faulkner
