Significance of the Carousel Horse

Carousel-Horse---1Rein in Sarcoma was created by Karen Wyckoff in the spring and summer of 2001 as a fundraiser to raise awareness and fund cures for sarcoma cancers. The event, now called our Party in the Park, was held at Cafesjian’s Carousel, the beautifully restored  MN State Fair carousel  now located on the grounds of Como Park in St. Paul, MN.

Karen died from Synovial Sarcoma a month after the first event held on forth Monday of July in 2001. Since then thousands  gather on a Monday evening in July to “Rein in Sarcoma” and to celebrate Karen’s dream of a world without Sarcoma Cancers.
