The Andrew Farrell Spirit of Courage Fund is a non-profit organization established in honor of the late Andrew Farrell, a successful high school student athlete with a persona that proved to be larger than life. The Spirit of Courage Fund raises money annually to support a grant to the Youth Advisory Council at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. There is also a scholarship awarded to a student baseball player at George Washington High School, Andrew’s alma mater, at the conclusion of the season. The recipient of the scholarship is selected on the basis that he exemplifies the same attributes that Andrew possessed both on and off the field: leadership, determination and courage.
