The Owatonna Huskies & the Minnesota Football Coaches Association are teaming up with the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund  to "Tackle Cancer."

Donations will be collected at the gate on Friday, September 19 prior to the game with Mankato West.

Last year, Owatonna raised over $2000 for the fund and the MFCA raised over $120,000 for cancer research and patient aid.

Cancer is a disease that has impacted all communities throughout Minnesota, including most Minnesota families and many football teams. The MFCA challenges every high school and college football team across the state to sponsor at least one "Tackle Cancer" game during the month of September, to raise funds for cancer research and community support.

The Huskies are asking all football fans who will be attending Friday’s game to donate generously at the gate as we all work together to “Tackle Cancer”!
