The Steve Larsen Memorial Fund


While Steve Larsen's public legacy largely points to his countless athletic accomplishments, it also lends to one of a man who put family first.

The Steve Larsen Memorial Fund has been set up to help defray costs and expenses otherwise incurred by Steve's wife Carrie and the couple's five children, Amalia, Massimo, Gunnar, Marco and Matteo.

Those wishing to make a donation to the fund can visit the donation at Steve's online retail storefront WorldTri.com. The link is:

Worldtri.com/product_p/stevelarsenmemorialfund.htm

The website Rememberstevelarsen.com will also be set up soon to accept donations.

This weekend will play host to a series of memorial rides. Saturday morning, athletes in Bend will celebrate Steve with the East Side Ride, with a 9 a.m. start (see attached flyer), as well as an afternoon parade procession, with the ride ending at the service.

In his former hometown of Davis, Calif., Larsen's friend Chad DeMasi is organizing a the Steve Larsen Memorial Ride and Fundraising auction, taking place Wednesday at Bistro 33 and Davis Wheelworks. Interested parties can email DeMasi at chad@demasirealestate.com

Triathlete, Inside Triathlon, Slowtwitch, Xtri.com and other media venues will soon announce an auction series, with mementos and signed gear from endurance sports luminaries across triathlon and bike racing. All funds raised will go directly to the Steve Larsen Memorial Fund.
