Cade & Colton Walmer Scholarship

In Memory of Cade Joseph Walmer & Celebration of Colton Barry Walmer


About Colton & Cade:

  • Colton & Cade Walmer were born April 1, 2011 three months premature to Kashi & Chris Walmer. During the delivery to the surprise of the doctors both babies cried and were mostly breathing on their own at 2lbs 2ounces & 2lbs 4ounces. After 3 weeks of great progress in the NICU, Cade Walmer got an infection called Necrotizing Enterocolitis that took over his body within a period of 15 hours. He succumbed to his infection and went home to heaven on Monday April 25th, 2011. In Cade’s Memory and in Celebration of Colton, the Administrators, Coaches, Players and Parents of Mizuno Volleyball Club have set up a Scholarship in both their names.
