In 2009, when he was only nine-years-old, Teagan Stedman founded Shred Kids' Cancer after finding out that his friend Alex was diagnosed with cancer. Shred Kids' Cancer is a 501c3 organization dedicated to serving the community by offering a solution for kids to help fight kids' cancer and show their peers who are suffering that they are here to help. Stedman who is the Chairman of the Board not only organizes Shred events, but is actively involved in motivating other kids to get involved. He encourages them to serve on the board and committees, help out with flyers, and solicit sponsors and auction items. He educates kids on how to hold bone marrow drives and gives presentations to businesses to get sponsorships for Shred events. Stedman’s efforts continue to inspire kids to unite for the cause and do what they can to help others in need.
