Description
Nine and a half years ago Mike Walsh's life was cut short after a courageous fight with brain cancer. Since his passing, his family has donated money to Bement High School to provide new uniforms to the schools girls basketball program. They have also donated money to install new bleachers at the football field. Mike Walsh was devoted to Bement High School and their athletic programs. He served on the school board for ten years and was also an active member of the Bement Athletic Booster Association. He volunteered as a coach for the girls' basketball program and played a big part in introducing girls' softball into Bement as well as being an assistant coach. For all that Mike did at the school they renamed the gymnasium after him. Mike got to see all three of his children play collegiate athletics. Our goal is to help other families realize that same goal. With your help we can make that happen. Proceeds go to local students that are continuing their education and athletics at a college or university and/or towards supporting the Bement Booster Association.
