10th Annual Adam Milne Charity Basketball Game

image For the tenth year in a row teachers, administrators, and staff from Webster Thomas High School and West Irondequoit High School will compete in a basketball game remembering Adam Milne to raise money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. The game is scheduled for Friday, March 4, at 7 p.m. at Irondequoit High School.

Adam was a social studies teacher at Irondequoit High School who was married to a teacher from Webster for three months, until he passed away of leukemia. Adam made a profound impact on his students and colleagues, living his motto, “Go Forth and Spread Joy.”

Like most charity basketball games, you’ll find quite a mix of talented, experienced, athletic players, along with plenty of us uncoordinated rookies who run around in circles, have fun, and are just proud if the ball hits the backboard!

You can help by coming to the game, sponsoring a player, or making a donation to this worthy cause in a fun and exciting event. Tickets will be sold only at the door on a first come, first served basis. There will be 600 gym tickets sold, $5 for students and $7 for adults. For any more than 600 people arrangements are being looked into sell additional seats in the auditorium to view a live feed. If feasible, those tickets would be $2.

Personal and/or corporate donations may be made by contacting Lou DiCesare at Louis_DiCesare@westiron.monroe.edu.)

  1. The game was a tremendous success! The gym was packed with standing room only, 100 overflow spectators watched the game on closed circuit TV in the cafeteria, the kids were fired up, the cheerleaders excited, and the players had a great time!

    Webster got off to an early lead, but Irondequoit caught up and late in the 3rd quarter held a 9-point lead. Webster was not done, however, and took the lead late in the fourth quarter. Much of the last five minutes was nail-biting time, with Irondequoit finally pulling out the victory to win 67-64.

    More importantly, everyone had a great time, and the event raised close to $10K for a terrific charitable cause in honor of an amazing teacher, Mr. Adam Milne.

    “Go Forth and Spread Joy!”

    Stat line for those who sponsored me:
    6 points, 10 rebounds, 8 shots, 2 fouls delivered, zero 3-pointers attempted! 🙂

  2. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on
    this blog loading? I’m trying to find out if its a problem on my end or
    if it’s the blog. Any feedback would be greatly

  3. I know I’m years late on this particular blog, but I was a student of Mr. Milne. Best teacher I ever had. In any class. He inspired kids like I had never seen any other teacher do, always made coming to class easy and fun, never forgot who was who, was one of the happiest people I had ever met. I remember when he was becoming ill.. became what I remember as very pale, almost ghostly… I knew something wasnt right…. may he continue to RIP… miss him so much

    Go forth, spread joy
