Minnesota Governor, Tim Walz has proclaimed July 2021 – Sarcoma Awareness Month. See the full proclamation.
Sarcomas cancers are rare and often aggressive cancers that attack the body’s connective tissues or bones. It is often diagnosed too late for proper treatment. Sarcoma is the third most common form of cancer in children and young adults.
Rein in Sarcoma’s mission is to raise awareness and educate the public and the medical profession about sarcoma cancers, as well as fund research to find a cure. This is in collaboration with Children’s Hospitals and Clinics Minnesota, Mayo Clinic, University of Minnesota, Regions Hospital and HealthPartners.
Be sure to check out Rein in Sarcoma’s social media posts throughout July and share them to help raise awareness of sarcoma cancer. See the links to our other social media sites in the footer of this web page.

We had an incredible day with 34 foursomes at Edinburgh, USA for the Fifth Annual Sarcoma Cancer Research Golf Classic on June 8! The golfers competed in a scramble format and braved the heat to help raise money for sarcoma research. The time together could not have been better!
Players also outbid each other for fine wines and fantastic foursomes in our silent auction. In all, over $60,000 was raised through this event.
We are thankful for our generous sponsors, especially the strong support of our diamond sponsor, Legacy Wealth, of Woodbury, MN. Our thanks to Development Committee Chair, Tom Boardman for managing a fantastic event, and all the golfers and volunteers who made the event a great success.
Please join us in 2022 – date and location TBD!
