Why Cade’s Day?

Cade’s Day is an event that was born from the loss of Cade’s life. A cornhole tournament is held twice a year, April (in Phoenix, Arizona) and September, (in Coronado, California). The April event celebrates Cade’s Birthday, and brings the community, family, and friends together to share stories, spread awareness and prevention resources, and have an afternoon of fun. There is live music along with the great tournament, as well as exceptional raffles! The event in September brings the community together for prevention and awareness, particularly for the Military community, as well as prevention from the tragedy the Coronado Bridge may bring. The Cade’s Day Cornhole Tournament is a fundraiser for The Cade Keller Scholarship Fund (Charles Schwab Charitable 6381-6100) which scholarships students in the Welding Program Cade was attending at Mesa Community College. Furthermore, the Fund provides materials and machinery needs of the Program.

About Cade

Cade Keller, 16, lived and loved what he loved, BIG TIME. He was considered to be an expert in the Natural World, and the exceptional skills of survival within it. Through his life he enjoyed using his strength, agility, and nimbleness though rock climbing, high diving, skateboarding, downhill skiing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, tubing, and all ocean sports… until he saw a recent video with sharks in the waves of his playground in Coronado. In the few months prior to his death, Cade tested and was accepted in the Welding College at Mesa Community College in Arizona. He was taking three courses, and had most recently completed his first three credits, earning a 100% in the lab. His goal was to pursue Pipe Welding. He was working with Uber Eats, opened his own savings account, and was engaging in a weekly financial advising course. Cade was a music enthusiast, which included a vast variety of genres. He enjoyed creating his own meals through of the moment ingredients of which he never followed a recipe. Many have stated he was a natural Epicurean as he started cooking at a very young age. He was most often found at our kitchen table, also known as the workbench, crafting handmade patches, jackets, pants, hoodies, bags, vests, and the like. He created every item by hand, including hand studding his prized vest. Cade was constantly complimented on his clothing and frequently asked if they could buy his items from him. Cade’s celebrated spirit had a standard reply, “I’m not a sell out!”
