RIS Has New Office Space!

Central Ave and Onondaga ST

Rein In Sarcoma is thrilled to announce, we have professional office space! A very generous community member, has donated 635 square feet inside of a secure office building in Fridley, MN. This office space supports the RIS development plan and helps transition Rein In Sarcoma to new leadership structure. With a sarcoma community advocate on our side, we have longevity in the space and a great working relationship in process.

The lay out is two parallel rectangular rooms. The first room easily hosts a conference table for meeting, project, and event planning space. The other room is secure, will hold files, print materials, desks, white boards, and phone. It boasts ample onsite parking, is accessible, and only a few minutes’ drive from I-694 and Central Avenue.

Want to support the move?
Donate time and come and paint with us! On Friday, November 17th from 2:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., and Saturday, November 18th from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. we will gather at 7401 Central Avenue NE, Fridley 55432. Wear painting clothes, and if possible, bring drop cloths and a paint roller frame. We will have trays, paint, rolls for roller frames, edging tape, and edging brushes. Please let us know if you are able to come. RSVP at calhounris@gmail.com or 651-341-4150. If you can't paint but want to support with snacks and supplies, let us know.

Help us envision a wish list for the space - donate chairs, help transport a donated conference table. A coffee pot and mugs are on the way from NY! We will hold an open house at a later date. We're excited to make the new office space our own and appreciate the time and support from you, family, and friends!

From November 21, 2017 – January 2, 2018 they will support raising awareness of sarcoma cancers, and raising funds for research to find cures with a charitable campaign called “Share the Love”.
