Will Steele, aka Cancer Guy, memorial scholarship fund 12/31/2012 10:11AM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post
In lieu of flowers, the family of Will Steele is asking that you donate to an endowment in Will's name at Christian Brother's University [Will's alma mater]. The William Steele scholarship is being set up there to honor Will and to benefit freshman runners at CBU who have shown courage, determination and strong moral character throughout their life.

You can make your check out to Christian Brothers University Cross Country. Please memo Will Steele Endowment. The endowment level they want to reach is $50,000, and they are asking people to consider a multi-year pledge.

Send your check to:
Office of Advancement
Christian Brothers University
650 East Parkway
Memphis, TN 38104

If your check is dated 12/31/2012 you will get tax credit for this year.

For additional details, please contact Stephen Kirkpatrick, Director of Development @ CBU skirkpat@cbu.edu; 800-283-2925.

[I've been in touch with Stephen, who asked me to include his contact information in this posting.]

Any chance of getting some form of electronic payment setup? Maybe Paypal or one of the various fund raising websites? That would make it easier for folks to donate and help raise more money.

Bumping to notify everyone that the running scholarship endowment fund in Will's (aka Cancer Guy) name is 80% funded. There is a push to have it fully funded by Will's 37th birthday, which would have been October 25th. Just $5000 remains to be raised.

Please consider a donation in memory of Will which will support deserving college athletes for years to come.
