Cancer is a disease that has impacted all communities, most of our families, and many of our football teams throughout Minnesota. For the past 32 years, Randy Shaver has been there every Friday night in the fall covering high school football.
The Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund partnered with the MFCA to challenge every high school football team to sponsor at least one “Tackle Cancer” night during the months of September and October. Fans attending the game can make donations towards funding additional cancer research and together we are “Tackling Cancer.”
On Saturday, August 19th and Sunday, August 20th Moe’s Bar & Grill in Moundsview hosted a Tackle Cancer Kick Off for Cancer Research and Patient Aid in Minnesota. There was a silent auction, beer, wine and food sampling, Wash Out Cancer game and entertainment including ‘GB Leighton’ with ‘Daisy Dillman Band Saturday night and Sunday was ‘Belfast Cowboys’. The Irondale High School football team had a Steak Fry fundraiser and Tackle Cancer fundraiser.
There was a suggested $10 donation with the proceeds going to the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund. A great turnout under the Big tent!
