About Andrew

Andrew Eldredge was struck by a motorcycle while walking in New York City on August 29, just days before he was to begin studies at Harvard Law School.

Since he was injured, Andrew has been unconscious. His progress has been steady and encouraging, but it will be a long road to recovery, both in the hospital and in extended rehabilitation for traumatic brain injury. His parents, Stacey and David, and his sisters, Lindsay and Madeline, have kept a constant vigil by his bedside since the accident.

Andrew grew up in Woodbridge and graduated from Amity High School in 2007. He graduated magna cum laude from Colgate University (’11), worked at Orion Consultants in NYC for two years, and completed a year at Boston University School of Law before transferring to Harvard.

The Eldredge family will need financial support for Andrew’s journey to recovery. Please help The Friends of the Eldredge Family with this effort.

Cash or checks only. Make checks payable to The Andrew Eldredge Family Fund.
