Over 500 community members and friends gathered June 12 to celebrate the memory of 14-year-old Tommy Nash by participating in Tommy’s Olympic Speed Walk. This event was intended to be a fun celebration of his life, to keep Tommy’s fun and creative spirit alive while raising money to support the BeLikeTommy Project.
Tommy Nash was a freshman at Mound Westonka High School when he passed away last December from sudden cardiac arrest. He was known for his inclusiveness, kindness and for bringing joy to others. To honor Tommy, the Nash family created the BeLikeTommy Project and planned the first event because of his interest in speed walking.
