On Dec. 19th members of the Basha Bears football program joined hundreds of others to raise awareness and money for research for Mitochondrial Disease here in Arizona. The First Annual Walk held at Kiwanis Park, was a huge success raising over $40,000 for research.
Althought we did not have a huge presence at the walk, the players and families who participated, had a great time interacting with others and taking some time out before the holidays to make a difference. Since this was the first annual of the walk, the Basha Football Program made a commitment to make this an annual thing and will continue to support the fight for Mitochondrial Disease.
The Players who participated in this years event were:
Seniors – Zach Williams(#99) and John Tanguay(#55)
Juniors – Blake Tamarkin(#95), Drew Mahooty(#78), Bryce Cole (#18) and Alex Benites (#52)
Next Years event will be held in November with more details to come later.
