The Minnesota Wrestling Coaches Association and the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund are excited to kick off this year of TakeDown Cancer.

TakeDown Cancer, with a few years under our belt, feel that the possibilities of this program are endless. Cancer is a disease that affects most families in one way or another; and the Minnesota wrestling family has an extremely strong group of members that have the potential to make an impact on the fight against cancer.

With a group effort, we can raise thousands of dollars for the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund. Donations go directly to cancer research and patient aid programs. See the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund website for details on the specific beneficiaries at

3 Ways To Takedown Cancer

Host a Takedown Cancer Event

Host a TakeDown Cancer fundraiser event. Dual meet or tournament, very easy to do! Contact us with your date of the event.

Direct Donation

Direct Donation – simply fill out the Direct Donation form enclose a check, make checks payable to RSCRCF.

Logo & Link Share

Logo and Link Share – Simply post our logo and link on YOUR website and we will post your logo and link on OUR sponsor page. It’s a win, win, not to mention an easy way for you and your team to build awareness and strengthen the cause.

Hometown Heroes

Get other coaches and parents involved. It’s the “in-season”, so don’t be afraid to delegate. A lot of people are affected by cancer, so it should be fairly easy to find reliable parents to assist.

Competing Teams

Try to get the other competing teams involved. Having more wrestlers and wrestling fans engaged in the process can only help your event be more successful.

T-shirts 4 Athletes

Consider purchasing T-shirts for your starting lineup to wear at the event and encourage the other teams to do so as well. Direct them to the TakeDown Cancer website. Apparel can be customized to specific school colors at no extra charge.

Purchase Merchandise

Purchase the correct amount of merchandise based on the expected number of spectators. If you “over order”, you can always sell the extra articles at a later date.

Donation Basket - Raffles

Some schools have been successful at passing a basket through the bleachers, just as you might find in a church. Or some have done raffles!

Social Media

Utilize social and print media in order to promote your event.
