Blackburn College soccer coach Rob Steinkuehler put on his Facebook page that they had to stop because of bad weather.

The event was inspired by his two year old son, who battled brain cancer.

The soccer team hoped to raise $100,000 for pediatric cancer research.

There's no information yet on how much was raised.
