On behalf of
the Minnesota Football Coaches Association, we are proud to announce an exciting new partnership
association and the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund.
Cancer is a disease that has impacted all communities, most of our families,
and many of our

has been there every Friday night in the fall
covering high school football. This partnership seems so natural!
Together, we are going to TACKLE CANCER.
The mission of the Randy
Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund is to support the cancer community
in Minnesota by funding research, prevention, treatment and other programs
relating to the cancer community’s needs. That’s where you and your
football team come in. We are partnering with the MFCA to challenge every
high school football team to sponsor at least one “Tackle Cancer” night
during the month of September.

additional cancer research and together we can “Tackle Cancer.” 90% of all
dollars collected will go DIRECTLY to cancer research and treatments.

work to be done.
