Fish fry at St. Bede will help fund new track

Posted by wlpo on February 12, 2016

There are a lot of fish fry’s happening Friday in the Illinois Valley. Only one will raise money to build a track in memory of a fallen marine.

The St. Bede Academy Fish Fry is 5 until 8 inside the school cafeteria. The cost is ten dollars a person with proceeds going to building a track at St. Bede in honor of Bruin alum Thomas Heitmann.

Heitmann was killed in a helicopter training exercise in 2011 in California. At that time he was a captain in the Marine Corps.

The Captain Thomas Heitmann Memorial Fund was set up by family and friends who want to fulfill his dream of a track and field facility at St. Bede.
