Theresa Fetsch - RIS Development Director

Rein in Sarcoma is very pleased to welcome Theresa Fetsch as our new Development Director. The search committee, made up of members of the Development Committee, the Talent and Resource Committee and Executive Director Janelle Calhoun, selected Theresa from a slate of excellent candidates. Theresa was able to start in time to join us at the Party in the Park!

Theresa brings prior event coordination and development experience from organizations such as the St. Paul Winter Carnival, Twin Cities Marathon, The Minneapolis Aquatennial, Minnesota Fighting AIDS on Bikes, and most recently, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Her education includes a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Advertising from St. Thomas as well as relevant leadership coursework.

We are looking forward to Theresa's leadership, working closely with the Development Committee, Executive Director, RIS Board and committee leadership, to insure long-term funding sustainability of Rein in Sarcoma's mission. Theresa is already engaged in the planning and execution of the upcoming RIS Golf Tournament and Fall Fundraiser.

Theresa says, “I'm thrilled to join the Rein In Sarcoma family as Development Director. I'm so passionate about fighting cancer and ultimately finding a cure because my father passed away from cancer, my niece is a cancer survivor, and my mom is a two-time cancer survivor. I'm really excited to get to work to support Sarcoma education, patients and their families and research."
