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 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!

Attend Tackle Cancer Kick-off At Moes

Mark your calendar for Friday, August 14th and Saturday, August 15th. Tackle Cancer will kick off a Two Day Benefit for Cancer Research and Patient Aid in Minnesota at Moe’s. Friday night is featuring the ‘Tim Sigler Band’ with Special Guest ‘The Thunderheads’. On Saturday night, G.B. Leighton will be featured along with Special Guest appearance ‘Blue Collar Cocktail’.


Rain or shine…Bring the whole family to Moe’s. There will be no cover charge in lieu of a suggested $10 donation. Your donation will go to the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund.
