The first ever Chainbreaker Ride is coming this weekend (August 11-13) and Team-Sarcoma is “ready to ride.” Thus far, 13 Team-Sarcoma riders have raised over $18,000 for Sarcoma cancer research at the University of Minnesota! There is still time to ride and still time to support our team and sarcoma research at the U of MN!
Tom Boardman, Team-Sarcoma co-Captain explains, “We have a new and exciting opportunity in partnering with Chainbreaker, a national movement to end cancer that that focuses on bike rides to raise funds, and the University of Minnesota, our longtime collaborator. I hope many of you will ride and support the Team Sarcoma maiden Chainbreaker ride. Rides vary from 25, 50, and 100 miles to a two-day 180 mile ride with 100% of the proceeds for the benefit of sarcoma research and education at the University of Minnesota.”
FORE!!!!! We need golfers and hole sponsors!!! With just a little over two weeks to go, Rein in Sarcoma will be hosting a charity golf event Friday August 25th at the beautiful Deer Run Golf Club in Victoria, MN. This event will benefit Rein in Sarcoma’s mission of Education, Patient & Family Support, and Research to improve treatment and find a cures for sarcoma cancers.
So clean up your clubs and put together your team of four, or sign up individually (we will help put you in a foursome). We'll play a scramble format on a beautiful course for a great cause. Lunch and steak dinner are included, as well as games on the course and an Under Armour® sports bag player gift.

RIS is a volunteer rich organization and we’re adding a regular feature to highlight the contributions made by one of our many fantastic volunteers.
Prior to joining the Public Relations and Marketing team in 2015 and befriending sarcoma survivors, Valeria López had no connection to sarcoma cancer. She has become an invaluable leader on our very active PR/Marketing Committee, using her graphic design, photography and videography skills to help us completely re-brand the organization, distribute comprehensive and visually appealing annual reports, design raffle tickets, gorgeous graphics and posters for RIS events, and record powerful sarcoma survivor stories.
This year, in addition to the Party in the Park and Fall Fundraiser graphics, Val worked with her Graphic Design students at Century College to re-design the Rein in Sarcoma organizational brochure. It was a great opportunity for the students to both learn about RIS and try out their newly learned design skills. The PR and Marketing committee chose the best brochure and the student was given an honorable mention at the Party. We hope you were able to pick up one of the brochures at the Picnic or Party.
We are SO thankful for Val’s time, talent and dedication to our organization. We would love to have YOU join us as a volunteer. Learn more about volunteering with RIS.
