The Braden Aboud Memorial Foundation was formed in loving memory of this fourteen year old who died in a skiing accident on February 4, 2007. The Foundation is dedicated to improving the health and educational development of the youth of El Paso. It was established to ensure that children from all walks of life could have some of the same opportunities that Braden enjoyed during his lifetime.
