Tackle Cancer

Tackle Cancer

Tackle Cancer Poster 2015Cancer is a disease that has impacted all communities, most of our families, and many of our football teams throughout Minnesota. For the past 30 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.”

A Special Thank You

Thank you to all of the schools who participated in last year’s Tackle Cancer. Over $228,000 was raised for Minnesota’s cancer community! Below is the list of current games for this coming season!
