The North Branch Quarterback Club invites the community to join the high school and Vikings football program in supporting KARE 11’s Randy Shaver and his Tackle Cancer initiative.
Starting now, the fundraiser will culminate on Senior and Parents Night Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m., when North Branch laces up against Benilde-St. Margaret’s in the Vikings’ last regular season home game of the year. Fans on both sides of the field will be able to donate to the Twin Cities television personality’s Cancer Research Fund.
According to North Branch Quarterback Club member Tom Sundly, the fundraiser is open to both the public and school community where students will be participating in activities such as a coin challenge to see what class can bring in the most “change for change.”
Already, more than 100 Minnesota schools have been raising money for the “Tackle Cancer” charity, which Shaver established to help fund local cancer research after his own trials with the disease.
Now it’s North Branch’s turn to make a difference.
