Tackle Cancer

One state. One week. One cause. Minnesota tackle’s cancer together! 

Unfortunately, cancer doesn’t stop even during a pandemic.

Fortunately, Minnesota high school football doesn’t stop in a pandemic either.

Tackle Cancer has raised over $2,000,000 dollars to support Minnesota’s cancer community since 2012.

This year, for one week, October 26th (starting at Noon) to November 1st (ending at Noon), our state's football community will come together as one to support those affected by cancer.

Give what you can to support research & patient aid projects.

Coaches – please help spread the word and share this link and text to give on social media and with your football community.

Link to Give:  Link goes Live Monday, October 26 @ Noon

Or text TackleCancer to 76278
