Tackle Cancer

Tackle Cancer

Cancer is a disease that has impacted all communities, most of our families, and many of our football teams throughout Minnesota. For the past 29 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 made donations towards funding additional cancer research and together we are “Tackling Cancer.”
