Missing Mike Keran
We are saddened to share the devastating news of the passing of longtime Seattle ultimate player, coach and community leader Mike Keran.
Mike acted as the Executive Director of DiscNW, served on the DiscNW board, coached at Hamilton middle school, played league and club ultimate and was a dear friend to many generations of ultimate players in the Pacific Northwest.
We will miss Mike's smile, energy, warmth and thoughtful stewardship of our sport.
