WDC to host ‘Tackle Cancer’ fundraiser TONIGHT!
The Wadena-Deer Creek football program, along with the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund, have teamed up to host its second annual “Tackle Cancer” night, Sept. 11 when the WDC Wolverines hosts the Osakis Silverstreaks. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. at WDC Football Field.
WDC students will have a table set up near the front gate to receive donations in the fight against cancer. Tackle Cancer eye blacks will be sold for a suggested donation of $2 or more.
“We are proud to partner once again with Randy Shaver and the Minnesota Football Coaches Association in hosting a Tackle Cancer game,” said Norm Gallant, WDC Activities Director. “Many people have been affected by cancer in one way or another, and this is our chance to help fund cancer research and find a cure for cancer.”
In addition, WDC is organizing a “Hat Day” on Sept. 11, where students and staff can donate a $1 to wear their favorite hat during the school day. All those donations will go toward the Tackle Cancer fundraiser as well.
Fans attending the Wolverine’s game are encouraged to donate. Minnesota high school and college football programs have raised more than $228,000 to help find a cure for cancer. For more information, go to randyshavercancerfund.org.
