“It’s a great cause to support.”
SWCCF is committed to fundraising partnerships offering financial support for vital research so that every child with cancer can be guaranteed a future and an improved quality of life. Steven Walter died after an eight year battle with cancer at age 19.
He requested that money be raised for research and support of children with cancer, "so that one day no other kid will have to go through what I've been through."

“So far I’ve raised $3500 and with the bike raise another $4800 so hopefully over $8000,” he said.
