​​​​ Additional Awards


With over 25 events involving thousands of kids we've raised over $500,000, funded 9 clinical trials and have expanded to hold events on both the west and east coast.

Where does the money go?

We like to fund research that is being done near our events so the community that supported our events can benefit. Research has been funded so far at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Branching out to create a larger impact!

In an effort to help his peers further, CEO Teagan Stedman came up with a novel idea on how to deliver drugs to cancer tumors more safely and effectively. His idea was named "The Next Big Thing" by TEDxTeen and SAP in May 2015.

After months of research, In March 2016 he proved his idea at University of Connecticut Health Kumbar Lab and was a Finalist in CT Science and Engineering Fair and Pfizer Life Science Medalist. He continues to develop this in Dr. Kumbar's lab at UConn Health.

Continuing to expand events with Shred Kids' Cancer to other areas and currently working to further develop his idea at Dr. Kumbar's lab in University of Connecticut Health(funding from National Science Foundation Number-IIP131107 and IIP-1355307). Many thanks to Dr. Roshan James and Dr. Sangamesh Kumbar for their guidance.
