Wes Walker, an assistant cross country coach at Salem Hills High School was involved in an endurocross motorcycle accident last weekend. He went in for surgery on his leg but did not wake up due to a complication of the surgery and type of fracture he sustained.
Walker has not woken since the surgery and the long-term prognosis for his recovery remains uncertain.
Walker has been part of the staff with Coach Bart Thompson since the school opened four years ago. He works as a firefighter in South Jordan, an ER tech at Mountain View Hospital in Payson, and is also a volunteer firefigher in Payson. Coach Thompson describes Walker as "one of the most giving people I know."
To aid Wes Walker and his family during this tragic time, the Fight For Wes Foundation has been established. As part of this Foundation, friends of the family are organizing the Fight For Wes 5K Run and Children's Mile. 100% of all proceeds will go directly to benefit Wes and his family.
