Help a Steiner Family and Local Business Owner

The Four Points community lost a great friend and small business owner this week with the passing of Kirk Leavell. Kirk leaves behind his wife Julie and his two beautiful children Karsen and Kash.  The Leavells are the owners of Wild Basin Fitness at the front of Steiner Ranch. Like many small companies, the pandemic has significantly impacted their business as we all hope to return to normal. 

My name is Paul Shaffer and I am a local resident of Steiner Ranch who trained under Kirk for the past 11 years.  Many people had reached out to me asking how they could help the family.  This site is being set up to help Julie and the kids with any short term needs with funeral expenses and other financial burdens that they will encounter in the coming months as well as to help defray college costs for the children.  I have Julie's approval to take the funds that are raised and add to an account that some of her closest friends have set up for her at SouthStar Bank.  In addition to this, we will be setting up a 529 Plan in Karsen's and Kash's name to help ease the financial burden for college. 

Any amount is deeply appreciated to help this family in need.
