About the Event

Given the restrictions surrounding COVID-19 and in the best interest of our supporter’s health, we have pivoted this year’s event to a virtual fundraiser. Our hope is to return to in-person events for 2021 and beyond. We would like to thank each of you for your support over the years and look forward to when we can all be back together again.

Each year the proceeds raised by our organization are designated by our annually elected “Champion” to be used in support of families fighting cancer and research for cures with approval from the Champions for Cures Board. Our 2020 Champion, is Meggan Mikal (surviving spouse to Andy Mikal). Please take a minute to read her story and why we have selected her family as this year’s recipient.

Dan Weber: Past Champion Recipient

A tremendous supporter of Champions For Cures from the beginning, Dan Weber was named our 2016 Champion. Never did he realize how significantly cancer could affect someone until he himself was told those three little words, “You have cancer.” After a rigorous battle with a rare cancer called Liposarcoma, we are happy to say that he is currently cancer free and more eager than ever to help find a cure. Bid on an Auction or Donate today.

Eric Kingdon: Founding Member

Eric Kingdon is a founding member of Champions For Cures and has been heavily involved over the years. What started as Birdies For Cures (an annual golf outing) has grown into much more today due to his personal efforts. He and his family (Brit and Henry) have moved to Minnesota and welcomed another member (Jackson) to the family in December 2020. Eric’s Dad, Randy, bravely fought prostate cancer for eleven years before passing away on September 15, 2017. Randy’s wish was for the proceeds for 2018 to be directed towards prostate cancer research. His family chose the prostate cancer research program at the University of Chicago that worked along with Randy’s doctors in Peoria, IL to provide treatment.

McCulley Family
